Also known as
Nicolaus I Bernoulli is also known as Nicolas Bernoulli.
Some sources spell the name Nikolaus.
Some sources use Niclaus, but this may be erroneous.
1937: Eric Temple Bell: Men of Mathematics refers to Nicolaus I Bernoulli as Nicolaus II Bernoulli, which appears to arise from a confusion between Nicolaus Bernoulli (1662 – 1716) and Nicolaus II Bernoulli (1695 – 1726).
