**Calculus** is a method of mathematical calculation that has been adapted in several different forms, including fractal and waveform. On Earth, it was independently discovered by Sir Isaac Newton and Gottfried Leibniz. It has also been discovered and studied by such species as the Qomar and Vulcans, however, members of such advanced species as the Aldeans were not aware of the concept of calculus.
