Newton and Leibniz are credited with the development of calculus at around the same time.
It was first discovered simultaneously by Isaac Newton and another mathematician named Gottfried Leibniz. (see related link). However, the notation that we use today is for the most part that of Leibniz. As far as development, it is still an actively researched field of mathematics with thousands of contributors.
Also, integral calculus is often attributed to Archimedes of Syracuse (c. 250 BC), having been largely ignored after him.

ANSWER
Sir Isaac Newton created calculus the same time that Leibniz did. However, Newton was able to take claim to it because of a system they had in those days of leaving sealed papers with universities in order to later prove that you came up with an idea first. Early intellectual property law. Sadly, this led to many mathematicians unwilling to collaborate productively and led Leibniz and Newton to start an international sparring match.
Many mathematicians like to say that calculus was discovered rather than created. It is impossible for two people to create the Mona Lisa at the same time, but to discover an already existing continent in the same century seems entirely plausible.

Sir Isaac Newton is credited with inventing modern Calculus. Mathematicians have used Newton's calculus for the last 400 or so years. However it turns out that Archimedes had also discovered Calculus, but this work was lost, and only recently rediscovered.

Why was calculus developed?

  It is difficult to provide an answer that does not sound tongue in cheek, but it is probably more true to say discovered first, and then developed, bringing into being a

How was calculus developed?

Calculus is based on the idea of the infinitesimal. To facilitate analysis curves were considered to consist of infinitesimally small straight line segments and volumes were c

Calculus is a branch of mathematics that studies what?

Calculus is the branch of mathematics that studies continuously  changing quantities. The calculus is characterized by the use of  infinite processes, involving passage to a

What is the relationship between Isaac Newton and the branch of mathematics called Calculus?

Newton is generally taken to have been one of the two inventors of the calculus, the other being Leibniz. They worked independently, had different motivations, and used differ

Nicolas Copernicus did He invented a new method of mathematical calculation called calculus?

Copernicus's main contribution was to propose a heliocentric model for the solar system, i.e. one with the sun at the center instead of the earth. This was in contrast to the

What is calculus in mathematics?

Calculus involves the exploration of limits in mathematics. For example, if you consider a polygon and keep adding a side to it, eventually it will begin to look like a circle

Who is the developer of calculus?

Issac Newton and Leibniz developed it independently. Newton discovered it first, but kept it to himself. Leibniz, on the other hand, published. Newton accused Liebnitz of ste
