Being one of the
world's premier communications technology companies, Bell Telephone Laboratories
(aka Bell Labs) engineers and scientists relied heavily on mathematics for its
accomplishment. It comes as no surprise, then, that one of their fullpage
promotions in a 1960 issue of RadioElectronics magazine celebrated the
accomplishments of mathematician Jacques Bernoulli.

Jacques Bernoulli: A Biography 
Electronics Pioneers & History
 See Full List of AI Topics 
Jacques Bernoulli (16541705) was a Swiss mathematician who, along with his
brother Jean Bernoulli, was instrumental in the development of calculus and the
application of mathematical principles to various fields.
Jacques Bernoulli was born into a family of mathematicians in Basel,
Switzerland, and showed an early aptitude for mathematics. He studied at the
University of Basel and then went on to study in Italy, France, and the
Netherlands. In 1687, he became a professor of mathematics at the University of
Basel, where he remained until his death.
Bernoulli made significant contributions to a variety of mathematical fields,
including calculus, number theory, probability theory, and physics. He is best
known for his work on the calculus of variations, a branch of mathematics that
deals with finding the optimal solution to a problem. In particular, he is
famous for the "brachistochrone problem," which involves finding the path taken
by a particle that travels between two points in the shortest time possible
under the influence of gravity.
Bernoulli also made significant contributions to the study of probability
theory. In 1713, he published "Ars Conjectandi," a book on probability that
introduced the concept of the Bernoulli distribution, which is named after him
and is still widely used in modern statistics.
