Currently, my problem is tracking down the original usage of this technique. I am trying to find a field of mathematics where it was first used, or perhaps an article in a journal that discusses the creation of the technique from the 19th century or so. I have found many applications, such as with differential equations, but no discussion of the origins of the methodology.

Can anyone help me out?
