1726
Publishes "Constructio linearum isochrononarum in medio quocunque resistente", his first paper & finished his degree.

1783
euler died on the 18th from a brain hemorrhage.
he was in the russian navy
in 1730 he became a professor in physics

a mathematical constant referred to as the number "e".
The number "e"
is important in
determining
interest calculation
and probablities
he published books and he taught math and science at the st. petersburg academy of sciences.

Base of natural logarithm
ln(x)=loge(x)
contributions to math
base of a natural logarithm
ln(x)=loge(x)
i
i=square root of -1
f(x)
sine&cosine
the euler method
used to solve 1st order differential equations with an intial starting value
eulers method approx.
solution equation
the euler method is very useful when solving a differantial that is difficult or impossible to do directly using integration.
eulers formula
it contains
what is thought
to be five most sig.
and fundamental
numbers in all
mathematics.
he did not learn
any math in primary
school because he did
not attend a very good
school, but since his
father was interested in
math his father taught him
at home. Leonhard read math books
on his own, but his dad also wanted
him to go to church like himself.
