University Of Basel Academy Of Science
2,249 wordsLeonhard Euler's father was Paul Euler. Paul Euler had studied theology at the University of Basel and had attended Jacob Bernoulli's lectures there. In fact Paul Euler and Johann Bernoulli had both lived in Jacob Bernoulli's house while undergraduates at Basel. Paul Euler became a Protestant minister and married Margaret Bruce, the daughter of another Protestant minister. Their son Leonhard Euler was born in Basel, but the family moved to Riehen when he was one year old and it was in Riehen, no...

For example Euler credits Albrecht, Krafft and Lexell for their help with his 775 page work on the motion of the moon, published in 1772. Fuss helped Euler prepare over 250 articles for publication over a period on about seven years in which he acted as Euler's assistant, including an important work on insurance which was published in 1776. Yushkevich describes th...

Straight Lines Great Impact
2,004 wordsEuclid's Elements Introduction to the works of Euclid and Euclid's Life Euclid's name is often associated with geometry. Euclid's Elements is one of the most influential and important scientific works in the history of mathematics. This work had served as the fundamental basics for the vast majority of geometrical teachings for the past 20 centuries. Euclid has made great impact on mathematics and set the standard for logical structure for works in the field of geometry. Unfortunately, there is ...

Euclidean Geometry Number Theory
704 wordsCarl Friedrich Gauss Carl Friedrich Gauss was a German mathematician and scientist who dominated the mathematical community during and after his lifetime. His outstanding work includes the discovery of the method of least squares, the discovery of non-Euclidean geometry, and important contributions to the theory of numbers. Born in Brunswick, Germany, on April 30, 1777, Johann Friedrich Carl Gauss showed early and unmistakable signs of being an extraordinary youth. As a child prodigy, he was sel...

Number Theory Pierre De
2,128 wordsWhile Descartes was laying the foundations of analytical geometry, the same subject was occupying the attention of another and not less distinguished Frenchman. This was Pierre de Fermat, who was born near Montauban in 1601, and died at Castres on January 12, 1665. Fermat was the son of a leather-merchant, growing up being educated at home. He earned himself a name later in his life by making contacts with some of the most important people in mathematics during that time period. In this paper I ...

2,992 wordsHistory of Math Mathematics, study of relationships among quantities, magnitudes, and properties and of logical operations by which unknown quantities, magnitudes, and properties may be deduced. In the past, mathematics was regarded as the science of quantity, whether of magnitudes, as in geometry, or of numbers, as in arithmetic, or of the generalization of these two fields, as in algebra. Toward the middle of the 19 th century, however, mathematics came to be regarded increasingly as the scien...
