Although Jacob Bernoulli (1654-1705) has been credited as the creator of "Binomial Distribution Table", Gottfried Leibniz (1646-1716) did his dissertation on the subject in 1666; Leibniz you may recall is the co-inventor of "Calculus" and beat Isaac Newton by several years in publishing his work. Actually, it was Jacob's brother Johann Bernoulli (1667-1748), an academic who made sense of Leibniz's notes and was primarily responsible for getting Leibniz's "Calculus" published. In fact, it was Johann that coined the term "Integral" (Leibniz called it sums), and may have even been responsible for the calculus symbology. If the name Bernoulli sounds familiar and you're an engineer, it's probably Johann's son Daniel Bernoulli you recall.

For over 300 years, mathematicians and statisticians have used the Binomial Distribution to group and model real world observations and is the basis of many other statistical distributions.
