Daniel da Silva (mathematician)

Daniel da Silva (16 May 1814 – 6 October 1878) was a Portuguese mathematician and marine officer. Born in Lisbon, he completed his first studies at the Portuguese Royal Naval Academy, and then proceeded his education in Mathematics at the University of Coimbra where he became a doctor.[1]

The inclusion-exclusion principle is sometimes attributed to da Silva, which was included in an 1854 publication.[2] However, the result is normally attributed to Abraham de Moivre.
