Nov 11 : An important day

  1. Nov 11, 2005 #1
    Browsing the homepage of WikiPedia, I came across this piece of information...

    1675: Gottfried Leibniz demonstrated integral calculus for the first time to find the area under the graph of a function y = f(x) by using antiderivatives.

    Happy 330th B'day, Integration? :biggrin:

    Well yes, and it's Rememberance Day too.

    We had an announcement about it at work over the Tannoy at 10.55, then again at 10.57, then again at 11am. It was almost like a countdown, followed by a very sombre anticlimax.
