Who Solved the Bernoulli Differential Equation and How Did They Do It?
Parker, Adam E.
College Mathematics Journal, v44 n2 p89-97 Mar 2013
The Bernoulli brothers, Jacob and Johann, and Leibniz: Any of these might have been first to solve what is called the Bernoulli differential equation. We explore their ideas and the chronology of their work, finding out, among other things, that variation of parameters was used in 1697, 78 years before 1775, when Lagrange introduced it in general.
