Sir Isaac Newton PRS 25 December 1642 – 20 March 1726/27. was an English mathematician, astronomer, theologian and physicist (described in his own day as a “natural philosopher”) who is widely recognized as one of the most influential scientists of all time and a key figure in the scientific revolution. His book Philosophiæ Naturalis Principia Mathematica (“Mathematical Principles of Natural Philosophy”), first published in 1687, laid the foundations of classical mechanics. Newton also made path breaking contributions to optics, and he shares credit with Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz for developing the infinitesimal calculus.
