Gottfried Leibniz - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (2784 words)
Leibniz is credited with the term "function" (1694), which he used to describe a quantity related to a curve, such as a curve's slope or a specific point of said curve.
The last years of his life - from 1709 to 1716 - were embittered by the long controversy with John Keill, Newton, and others, as to whether he had discovered the differential calculus independently of Newton's previous investigations, or whether he had derived the fundamental idea from Newton, and merely invented another notation for it.
The death of Leibniz in 1716 only put a temporary stop to the controversy which was bitterly debated for many years later.
