Today is Gottfried Wilhelm von Leibniz's Birthday!
Happy Birthday

Born:  July 1, 1646
in Leipzig, Saxony, now Germany
Died:  November 14, 1716

Biographers write that Leibniz led an extremely lonely life working abroad.  Only his servant attended his funeral.

Today his contributions to mathematics are appreciated throughout the world.  In fact, his notation in the Calculus is in every printed text.
