Infinitesimal calculus: Infinitesimals are assumed infinitely small sections of a change which can be treated with the method of infinitesimal calculus. The length of the sections, e.g. represent a side of a surface to be calculated, approaches zero and can be omitted at the end. Today, a limit of this development is assumed instead. See also differential calculus, integral calculus, infinity, completeness, movement, change.
