Description
Today Newton and Leibniz are generally considered to be the twin independent inventors of calculus, giving mathematics its greatest push forward since the time of the Greeks. Had they known each other under different circumstances, they might have been friends, says science writer Jason Bardi, but the joint glory of calculus was not enough for either of them, and they each declared war against the other, openly and in secret. And though this bitter dispute has been swept under the carpet by historians (perhaps because it reveals Newton and Leibniz in their worst light), Bardi tells the full story here, revealing how these mathematical giants were brilliant, proud, at times mad, and completely human.
