1711

In 1711 Isaac Newton published *Analysis per quantitatum series, fluxiones, ac differentias cum enumeratione linearum tertii ordinis*, edited by William Jones.

This was the first printing of Newton's tracts *De analysi per aequationes numero terminorum infinitas"* and *Methodus differentialis*, together with reprints of the tracts on quadratures and cubics first published in *Opticks* (1704). *De analysi*, Newton's first independent treatise on higher mathematics, was written in 1669 to protect his priority in the invention of the calculus. It contains the earliest printed account of Newton's generalized binomial theorem. In 1711, Newton permitted mathematician William Jones (one of the few allowed access to Newton's manuscripts) to publish these four tracts. Aside from his association with Newton, Jones is chiefly remembered for having introduced the symbol Π into mathematical notation.
