Σελίδα 159 - What principles you proceed upon; how sound they may be; and how you apply them? It must be remembered that I am not concerned about the truth of your theorems, but only about the way of coming at them; whether it be legitimate or illegitimate, clear or obscure, scientific or tentative.
Σελίδα 128 - ... motion, by means of which they increase or decrease ; as a line by the motion of a point ; a surface by the motion of a line ; and a solid by the motion of a surface.
Σελίδα 172 - ... the mark will have no meaning or signification : thus if it be said that the square of — 5, or the product of —5 into —5, is equal to +25, such an assertion must either signify no more than that 5 times 5 is equal to 25 without any regard to the signs, or it must be mere nonsense and unintelligible jargon.
Σελίδα 158 - ... to demonstrate any proposition a certain point is supposed, by virtue of which certain other points are attained; and such supposed point be itself afterwards destroyed or rejected by a contrary supposition ; in that case all the other points attained thereby and consequent thereupon, must also be destroyed and rejected, so as from thenceforward to be no more supposed or applied in the demonstration.
Σελίδα 128 - I sought a method of determining quantities from the velocities of the motion or increments with which they are generated ; and calling these velocities of the motions or increments Fluxions, and the generated quantities Fluents, I fell by degrees upon the method of Fluxions, which I have made use of here in the quadrature of curves, in the years 1665 and 1666.
Σελίδα 128 - Lines are described, and therefore generated not by the apposition of parts, but by the continued motion of points ; superficies by the motion of lines ; solids by the motion of superficies ; angles by the rotation of the sides ; portions of time by a continual flux ; and so in other quantities. These geneses really take place in the nature of things, and are daily seen in the motion of bodies.
Σελίδα 132 - We must therefore be careful to distinguish between the ratio of two evanescent quantities, and the limit of their ratio ; the former ratio never arriving at the latter, as the quantities vanish at the instant that such a circumstance is aboBt to take place.
Σελίδα 27 - The fourth term is equal to the product of the second and third terms, divided by the first term.
Σελίδα 172 - ... some other quantity, as a, to which it is to be added, or from which it is to be subtracted, the mark will have no meaning or signification : thus if it be said that the square of — 5, or the product of —5 into —5, is equal to +25, such an assertion must either signify no more than that...
