His father, Nickolaus Bernoulli, was descended from four generations of prosperous merchants and pharmacists; James’s mother, Margaretha Schönauer, was the daughter of a banker. Both parents’ families were prominent in local politics.Like his younger brother, John, James abandoned the discipline chosen for him by his father —

He was an early proponent of Leibnizian calculus and sided with Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz during the Leibniz–Newton calculus controversy. He is known for his numerous contributions to calculus, and along with his brother Johann, was one of the founders of the calculus of variations. He also discovered the fundamental math

His name is firmly associated with l'Hôpital's rule for calculating limits involving indeterminate forms 0/0 and ∞/∞. Although the rule did not originate with l'Hôpital, it appeared in print for the first time in his 1696 treatise on the infinitesimal calculus, entitled Analyse des Infiniment Petits pour l'Intelligence des Lignes Courbes. This book was a first systematic exposition of differential calculus. Several e
