Once infinitesimal analysis was a synonym for “infinitesimal calculus”, hence for the foundations of the theory of differentiation and integration, but it has come to refer to the formulation of analysis using explicit infinitesimal objects, in contrast to epsilontic analysis.
Formalisms that make infinitesimal analysis precise include
synthetic differential geometry with nilpotent infinitesimals
nonstandard analysis with non-nilpotent infinitesimals
