PMM 196, Norman 732. - FIRST EDITION. The first in a triology of works summarizing Euler's own and other discoveries in the mid-l8th century. 'In his Introduction to Mathematical Analysis Euler did for modern analysis what Euclid had done for ancient geometry. It contains an exposition of algebra, trigonometry and analytical geometry, both plane and solid, a definition of logarithms as exponents, and important contributions to the theory of equations. He evolved the modern exponential treatment of logarithms, including the fact that each number has an infinity of natural logarithms. In the early chapters there appears for the first time the definition of mathematical function, one of the fundamental concepts of modern mathematics. From Euler's time mathematics and physics tended to be treated algebraically, and many of his principles are still used in teaching mathematics' (PMM 196). - Visit our website to see more images!
