Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Leonhard Euler was one of the most prolific mathematicians that have ever lived. This book examines the huge scope of mathematical areas explored and developed by Euler, which includes number theory, combinatorics, geometry, complex variables and many more. The information known to Euler over 300 years ago is discussed, and many of his advances are reconstructed. Readers will be left in no doubt about the brilliance and pervasive influence of Euler's work.

Book News Annotation:

The title derives from Laplace's assessment of Euler (1707-83): "Read Euler ... He is the master of us all." For the mathematically literate, Dunham (mathematics, Muhlenberg College, Allentown, PA) introduces the visually impaired genius (whose picture graces 10 franc Swiss currency); places his contributions to number theory, infinite series, and other diverse areas in a historical context; and outlines his magnum opus, Opera Omnia. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews@booknews.com)
