The method of fluxions was originally given by Newton in order to determine the tangent to a curve. In this note, we will formulate this method by the light of some modern mathematica tools.

See detailUne modélisation d'un zoom au moyen de microscopes virtuels
Bair, Jacques ULg; Henry, Valérie ULg

in Teaching Mathematics and Computer Science (2004), II(II), 319-335

We explain how a computer works when zooms are made around a point on a planar curve. This modelisation leads to an easy and algorithmic method to find the tangents for the studied curve.
