Abstract
A mathematicalhistorical revisit of the controversy of GFA L'Hospital and J Bernoulli, and related developments in the history of calculus in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. This paper presents some of the indeterminate forms occurring in problems in mathematics and statistics relevant to economic analysis.
