With his brother Bernoulli pioneered Gottfried Leibniz's calculus. He also contributed to many areas of applied mathematics, including the problem of a particle moving in a gravitational field. He found the equation of the catenary in 1690 and developed exponential calculus in 1691.

Bernoulli proposed a fluid energy perpetual motion machine.
