"If
a nonnegative quantity was so small that it is smaller than any given
one, then it certainly could not be anything but zero. To those who ask
what the infinitely small quantity in mathematics is, we answer that it
is actually zero. Hence there are not so many mysteries hidden in this
concept as they are usually believed to be. These supposed mysteries
have rendered the calculus of the infinitely small quite suspect to
many people. Those doubts that remain we shall thoroughly remove in the
following pages, where we shall explain this calculus." -- Leonhard Euler |
