Mathematical analysis is the branch of mathematics dealing with limits and related theories, such as differentiation, integration, measure, infinite series, and analytic functions.. These theories are usually studied in the context of real and complex numbers and is evolved from calculus, which involves the elementary concepts and techniques of analysis. Simple mathematics on oracle bone script date back to the Shang Dynasty (– BC). One of the oldest surviving mathematical works is the I Ching, which greatly influenced written literature during the Zhou Dynasty (– BC). For mathematics, the book included a sophisticated use of hexagrams. Leibniz pointed out, the I Ching (Yi Jing) contained elements of binary numbers.
