Newton’s Principia: looking beneath the surface of a mathematical masterpiece.
Welcome to my Principia site. It is largely based on The Mathematical Principles of Natural Philosophy, Isaac Newton, translated and annotated by Charles Leedham-Green and published by Cambridge University Press. The direction that the blog takes will be governed by your contributions. Please share your thoughts by commenting below.
I occasionally post on Twitter.

amazing how few have read Charles new translation, et alone commented on it. 20 years of work phew.
My maths and understanding of the whole is so incomplete that I need instruction.
Just have had read to me Prof Jones comments on the French astronomer of yesteryear and his contribution to the subjects of the Principia.
Amazing to have a mathematical genius translated by a mathematical genius. Is Prof Leedham-Green the first person to actually translate the underlying mathematics rather than just the words? Love the book, love the blog.
