Leonhard Euler was widely credited to be one of the founders of pure mathematics
Euler is a Swiss mathematician and physicist
Euler made significant contributions to modern analytic geometry and trigonometry
His work revolutionized the fields of calculus, geometry and number theory
Eulers Views
He was a firm believer in the freedom of the will this view won him a few friends in Germany
Euler also believed that the moon did not contain sufficient atmosphere to provide the affects of diffraction or refraction. He was the only one who could detect the atmosphere
His area of work included his theory of the production of the human voice, the theory of sound and music, the mechanics of vision, and his work on telescopic and microscopic perception which lead to the construction of telescopes and microscopes.
Leonhard Euler always said " “Logic is the foundation of the certainty of all the knowledge we acquire.”
Euler's Theories Used in Today's Math
I think it is very interesting to think that someone hundreds of years ago discovered how diffraction and refraction worked in the world of mathematics and is still used today. In the future we will be using diffraction and refraction in physics class.
