within the mid-eighteenth century, Swiss-born mathematician Leonhard Euler constructed a formulation so leading edge and complicated that it maintains to encourage examine, dialogue, or even the occasional limerick. Dr. Euler's superb Formula stocks the attention-grabbing tale of this groundbreaking formula—long considered as the foremost for mathematical beauty—and indicates why it nonetheless lies on the center of complicated quantity thought. In many ways a sequel to Nahin's An Imaginary Tale, this ebook examines the various functions of complicated numbers along fascinating tales from the heritage of arithmetic. Dr. Euler's great Formula is obtainable to any reader conversant in calculus and differential equations, and can provide to motivate mathematicians for years to come.
