1. Introduction. In Thomas Simpson (–) published The Doctrine and Application of Fluxions, which the author considered to be a new book rather than a second edition of his A New Treatise of gh both works contained the direct and the inverse method of fluxions, in the preface of Simpson stated that this second work was more comprehensive and . fluxions - calculus and the fundamental theorem; applications of fluxions to extrema problems, area problems By Leibnitz has discovered most ideas in current calculus text books.

This chapter explores the analytical method of fluxions, as stated in De Methodis. Newton’s method of fluxions can be divided into two parts: The direct and the inverse. Newton considered the techniques of the direct method to be perfected, as presented in his treatise De Methodis. After making his De Methodis treatise, he also sought to develop his inverse method algorithm, while also. He edited also the second edition, revised and improved, of Humphrey Ditton's ‘An Institution of Fluxions,’ [3] In , he prepared a new edition of William Wollaston 's The Religion of Nature Delineated, to which he added a life of the author, [8] and English translations (made some years earlier for the use of Queen Caroline) of.

For the word in English the OED has a passage from H. Ditton An Institution of Fluxions p. 31 “'Tis required to find the relation of the Fluxion of the Ordinate to the Fluxion of the Abscisse.”" Struik's Source Book in Mathematics, in a footnote to the cited page has the following, confirming some of Cajori's claims. These along with his fluxions, the approach to calculus which he alone began to develop single-handedly at that time, continued to be his main mathematical interests as long as he was involved in creative writing [4, p]. It has been said that the method of fluxions remains his best-known contribution to mathematics today [5, p].
