 Item
Identifier: Coll-33/Folio C [206]
Scope and Contents A tranche of workpapers in which Gregory continues to labour on adapting Newton's method of quadrature. He continues to have trouble adapting the basic series, an indefinite integral, to the definite integral defined between O and x.

One paper among these was probably intended for the Astronomiae, showing a body moving in an ellipse.
Dates: 1686

 Item
Identifier: Coll-33/Folio C [205]
