## Lebesgue, Henri Leon (1875–1941)Lebesgue integral (see integration).
This led to important advances in calculus,
curve rectification, and trigonometric series, and, in Borel's hands, marked
the start of measure theory. Although
the Lebesgue integral was an example of the power of generalization, Lebesgue
himself wasn't a fan of generalization and spent the rest of his life working
on very specific problems, mostly in analysis.
