They opened up the fields of functional equations including the difference equations fundamental to the difference engine and operator D-module methods for differential equations. These symbolic directions became popular, as operational calculusand pushed to the point of diminishing returns.
The Cauchy concept of limit was kept at bay. In essence it was known to Abraham De Moivre Herschel found the method impressive, Babbage knew of it, and it was later noted by Ada Lovelace as compatible with the analytical engine.
