Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] Francesco Faà di Bruno (1825-1888) was not only a man of faith and a patriot, mathematician, engineer and inventor. In 1859 he published in Paris, in French, the Théorie générale de l'élimination, which gives the formula, which he takes the name from, of the nth derivative of a composite function. However, his name in mathematics is mainly linked to the treatise on the theory of binary forms.
