Wikipedia on Leibnitz<b>:</b><br /><br />"...Leibniz went to Paris in 1672 [age 25-26]. Soon after arriving, he met Dutch physicist and mathematician Christiaan Huygens and realised that his own knowledge of mathematics and physics was patchy. [He had studied law.] With Huygens as his mentor, he began a program of self-study that soon pushed him to making major contributions to both subjects, including discovering his version of the differential and integral calculus."a_probsthttps://www.blogger.com/profile/16197411067925016452noreply@blogger.com
