Leibniz - Bernoulli Correspondence

Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz carried on an active correspondence within the intellectual community of his time. In particular, two of his main correspondents were the brothers Jacob and Johann Bernoulli. Johann began corresponding with Leibniz in 1693.

In this December 1696 letter from Leibniz to Bernoulli, there is a discussion of integration by parts applied to functions having powers of x and powers of the logarithm.
