Introduction to the Euler Archive

The Euler Archive is dedicated to making the work of Euler available freely and online. At its core are 866 webpages, which we refer to as Eneström pages, or just E-pages, one for each of Euler’s works identified by Gustav Eneström in his catalog of Euler’s works. A sample page is shown here:

Each page gives some basic bibliographic information about the work. Most pages provide a short summary, and most of them (832 of the 866 pages, as of April 2011) provide a link to download a scan of the original work. If applicable, there are also links to translation(s) of the work, and references to modern scholarship that refer to it.

These E-pages can be accessed in a variety of ways. Users can browse the archive by subject, by the date the paper was written (or published), by the place where the paper was published, or by its “Eneström number.” For those interested in the details of Euler’s life, we also provide many historical pages, about the societies for which he worked, the journals in which he published, and the cities in which he lived.
