The work of many mathematicians led to the work of James Gregory and Isaac Barrow. A fuller history could name Eudoxus, Liu Hui, Archimedes, Zu Chongzhi, Alhazen, Pierre de Fermat, Bonaventura Cavalieri, Evangelista Torricelli, and John Wallis. Then there were Isaac Newton and Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz, who invented calculus as a mathematics of motion and change.
