Euler: The Master of Us All

Front Cover
American Mathematical Soc., 2020 M07 29 - 185 pages

Recipient of the Mathematical Association of America's Beckenbach Book Prize in 2008!

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.
