It’s sometimes argued that mathematical analysis in the 18th century flourished in Europe and languished in England because the English stubbornly held on to fluxions, while the Bernoullis, Euler, Lagrange, etc. happily adopted differentials. If you fight through the math in Gilbert’s paper, you’ll appreciate that argument. I knew that England was late to change but was surprised to see fluxions still being used as late as 1826. It didn’t last much longer.
How high can you build a Lego tower? Read on to find out... and how we know.
