How Euler did it by
Charles Edward Sandifer(
Book
)
9 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 455 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
How Euler Did It is a collection of 40 monthly columns that appeared on MAA Online between November 2003 and February 2007 about the mathematical and scientific work of the great 18th century Swiss mathematician Leonhard Euler. Almost every column is selfcontained and gives the context, significance and some of the details of a particular facet of his work. Professor Sandifer based his columns on Euler's own words in the original language in which they were written. In this way, the author was able to uncover many details that are not found in other sources. For example, we see how Euler used differential equations and continued fractions to prove that the constant e is irrational, several years before Lambert, who is usually credited with this discovery. Euler also made an observation equivalent to saying that the number of primes less than a number x is approximately x/Inx, an observation usually attributed to Gauss some 15 years after Euler died. The collection ends with a somewhat playful, but factual, account of Euler's role in the discovery on America.  Publisher

The early mathematics of Leonhard Euler by
Charles Edward Sandifer(
Book
)
6 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 420 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Early Mathematics of Leonhard Euler describes Euler's early mathematical works: the 50 mathematical articles he wrote before he left St. Petersburg in 1741 to join the Academy of Frederick the Great in Berlin. These works contain some of Euler's greatest mathematics: the Konigsburg bridge problem, his solution to the Basel problem, his first proof of the EulerFermat theorem. It also presents important results that we seldom realize are due to Euler: that mixed partial derivatives are equal, our f(x) notation, and the integrating factor in differential equations. The book provides some of the way mathematics is actually done. For example, Euler found partial results towards the EulerFermat theorem well before he discovered a proof of the Fermat theorem itself, and the EulerFermat version came 30 years later, beyond the scope of this book. The book shows how results in diverse fields are related, how number theory relates to series, which, in turn relate to elliptic integrals and then to differential equations, There are dozens of such strands in this beautiful web of mathematics. At the same time, we see Euler grow in power and sophistication, from his first work on differential equations as an 18year old student, a paper with a serious flaw in it, to the most celebrated mathematician and scientist of his times, when, at the age of 34, he was lured away like a superstar athlete might be traded today. The book is a portrait of the world's most exciting mathematics between 1725 and 1741, rich in technical detail. Woven with connections within Euler's work and with the work of other mathematicians in other times and places, laced with historical context."Publisher's website

Euler at 300 : an appreciation by
Robert E Bradley(
Book
)
10 editions published in 2007 in English and Spanish and held by 378 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Leonhard Euler (17071783) was the most important mathematician of the 18th century. His collected works, which number more than 800 books and articles, fill over 70 large volumes. He revolutionised real analysis and mathematical physics, singlehandedly established the field of analytic number theory, and made important contributions to almost every other branch of mathematics. A great pedagogue as well as a great researcher, his textbooks educated the next generation of mathematicians. This book compiles over 20 papers, based on some of the most memorable contributions from mathematicians and historians of mathematics at academic meetings across the USA and Canada, in the years approaching Leonhard Euler's tercentenary. These papers will appeal not only to those who already have an interest in the history of mathematics, but will also serve as a compelling introduction to the subject, focused on the accomplishments of one of the greatest mathematical minds of all time"Publisher description

The year 2007 marks the 300th anniversary of the birth of one of the Enlightenments most important mathematicians and scientists, Leonhard Euler. This volume is a collection of 24 essays by some of the worlds best Eulerian scholars from seven different countries about Euler, his life and his work. Some of the essays are historical, including much previously unknown information about Eulers life, his activities in the St. Petersburg Academy, the influence of the Russian Princess Dashkova, and Eulers philosophy. Others describe his influence on the subsequent growth of European mathematics and physics in the 19th century. Still others give technical details of Eulers innovations in probability, number theory, geometry, analysis, astronomy, mechanics and other fields of mathematics and science.  Over 20 essays by some of the best historians of mathematics and science, including Ronald Calinger, Peter Hoffmann, Curtis Wilson, Kim Plofker, Victor Katz, Ruediger Thiele, David Richeson, Robin Wilson, Ivor GrattanGuinness and Karin Reich  New details of Euler's life in two essays, one by Ronald Calinger and one he coauthored with Elena Polyakhova  New information on Euler's work in differential geometry, series, mechanics, and other important topics including his influence in the early 19th century
