Leonhard Euler

Leonhard Euler (1707-1783) was a pioneering Swiss mathematician and physicist. He made important discoveries in fields as diverse as infinitesimal calculus and graph theory. He also introduced much of the modern mathematical terminology and notation, particularly for mathematical analysis, such as the notion of a mathematical function. He is also renowned for his work in mechanics, fluid dynamics, optics, and astronomy. Euler spent most of his adult life in St. Petersburg, Russia, and in Berlin, Prussia. He is considered to be the preeminent mathematician of the 18th century, and one of the greatest mathematicians to have ever lived. He is also one of the most prolific mathematicians ever; his collected works fill 60--80 quarto volumes.

A Tribute to Euler

In this talk, Professor William Dunham gives an overview of Euler's life and describes a few of his contributions to number theory, algebra, and other branches of mathematics. Then he examine a particular Eulerian theorem.
