Bernoulli meaning

bər-no͝olē
Family of Swiss mathematicians and scientists, including Jakob or Jacques (1654–1705), an important developer of ordinary calculus and the calculus of variations. His brother Johann or Jean (1667–1748) developed the calculus of variations. Johann's son Daniel (1700–1782) anticipated the law of conservation of energy, did pioneering work in the molecular theory of gases, and contributed to probability theory and the theory of differential equations.

Family of Swiss mathematicians. Jacques (or Jakob ) (1654–1705) was a major developer of calculus and made an important contribution to probability theory. His brother Jean (or Johann ) (1667–1748) also developed calculus and contributed to the study of complex numbers and trigonometry. Jean's son Daniel (1700–1782) pioneered the modern field of hydrodynamics and anticipated the kinetic theory of gases, indicating that gas pressure would increase with increasing energy. He was also one of the first scientists to understand the concept of conservation of energy.
