Maclaurin, Colin



Mathematician, born in Kilmodan, Argyll and Bute, W Scotland, UK. He studied at Glasgow, became professor at Aberdeen (1717), and in 1725 was appointed to the chair of mathematics at Edinburgh. His best-known work, Treatise on Fluxions (1742) gave a systematic account of Newton's approach to the calculus, taking a geometric point of view rather than the analytical one used in mainland Europe.
