Based on written/published records.

Leibniz was one of the two that discovered independently the infinitesimal calculus.

First written record from Newton: De analysi per aequationes numero terminorum infinitas (written: 1669; published: 1711).

First published record from Newton: Tractatus de Quadratura Curvarum (1704).

First published paper from Leibniz: Nova Methodus pro Maximis et Minimis (1684).
