Euler through time; a new look at old themes.
Amer. Mathematical Society
Euler's output is astounding. He wrote the first accessible books on calculus, created the theory of circular functions, and worked on elliptic el·lip·tic or el·lip·ti·cal
1. Of, relating to, or having the shape of an ellipse.
2. Containing or characterized by ellipsis.
a. intervals, the calculus of variations calculus of variations, branch of mathematics concerned with finding maximum or minimum conditions for a relationship between two or more variables that depends not only on the variables themselves, as in the ordinary calculus, but also on an additional arbitrary , graph theory, and divergent series. His work in number theory is essential. Here Varadarajan (mathematics, UCLA UCLA University of California at Los Angeles
