Stablished a fundamental formula for liquid motion Demonstrated the existence of non-newtonian mechanics Elaborated original works about real numbers Generalized Euler 9 points theorem to spatial geometry Developed an equation for three bodies problem Created asymptotic transformation Idealized a modification of Talcott method for local latitude using a simple theodolite (1901), before Chauvenet (1917). It is known as Garavito method and uses equal circumidian circles altitudes of two stars.
