The mathematical concept of something infinitely small was achieved thanks to arduous work of humanity throughout many centuries. The first achievements related to the topic exist, fundamentally, because of the developments obtained by the atomists, being their most important exponers Democritus, Zenon and Arquimedes in ancient Greece, and Galilleo and Cavalieri in the Renaissance. The methods used by Arquimedes and Cavalieri to approach this problem, from their own perspectives, are presented here.
