Isaac Barrow (1630-1677), English mathematician, who resigned his post at Cambridge University, England, in favour of his pupil Isaac Newton. Barrow graduated from Cambridge University in 1648 and later, in 1660, became Professor of Greek there. From 1664 to 1669 he held the Lucasian Chair in Mathematics, inherited by Newton at age 27. Barrow came close to anticipating some of the concepts of differential calculus that Newton later expounded. He was a noted classicist and theologian.
