Foundations of differential calculus by
Leonhard Euler(
)
24 editions published between 2000 and 2005 in English and held by 972 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
What differential calculus, and, in general, analysis of the infinite, might be can hardly be explained to those innocent of any knowledge of it. Nor can we here offer a definition at the beginning of this dissertation as is sometimes done in other disciplines. It is not that there is no clear definition of this calculus; rather, the fact is that in order to understand the definition there are concepts that must first be understood. Besides those ideas in common usage, there are also others from finite analysis that are much less common and are usually explained in the course of the development of the differential calculus. For this reason, it is not possible to understand a definition before its principles are sufficiently clearly seen. In the first place, this calculus is concerned with variable quantities. Although every quantity can naturally be increased or decreased without limit, still, since calculus is directed to a certain purpose, we think of some quantities as being constantly the same magnitude, while others change through all the .stages of increasing and decreasing. We note this distinction and call the former constant quantities and the latter variables. This characteristic difference is not required by the nature of things, but rather because of the special question addressed by the calculus

Elements of algebra by
Leonhard Euler(
Book
)
83 editions published between 1779 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 808 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book, originally published in 1765, is a gentle introduction to algebra by one of history's greatest mathematicians, Leonhard Euler. Starting with basic mathematical concepts such as signs, fractions, powers and roots, logarithms, infinite series, arithmetic and geometric ratios, and the calculation of interest, Euler then discusses how to solve equations of varying degrees, methods of rendering certain formulas rational, and more. In 1771, JosephLouis Lagrange included an addendum to the French edition containing topics such as continued fractions and Diophantine equations. This edition of Elements of Algebra was completely rewritten using Microsoft Word and its Equation Editor over the course of several months and is not just another scanned copy of John Hewlett's original English language translation. This new edition contains Euler's Part I (Containing the Analysis of Determinate Quantities) and Part II (Containing the Analysis of Indeterminate Quantities), Lagrange's Additions as well as all of the footnotes by Johann Bernoulli and others. While much of the text remains the same as that edition, several changes were made to make it more accessible to the modern reader: 1. The words "she" and "shewn" were replaced by "show" and "shown", respectively. 2. The original notation for continued fractions has been replaced with the more modern notation. 3. Several GermantoEnglish and FrenchtoEnglish translation issues were resolved. 4. While the order is the same as John Hewlett's English language translation, in order to give the work more space, each chapter now begins on its own page. 5. Several inline formulas were moved outofline to give the work more space. 6. Several errors in the formulas were discovered and corrected. 7. The word "formulae" was replaced by "formulas". 8. The footnotes were moved to a Notes section at the end of the book. 9. The overuse of the comma in several places was brought up to modern standards. It is my hope that by creating this new "modern" edition, a renewed interest will be generated for a work which certainly does not deserve to be forgotten, written by a brilliant mathematician considered "the master of us all"
