Mathematical Treasures - Leonhard Euler's Differential Calculus

Frank J. Swetz (The Pennsylvania State University)

Institutiones Calculus Differentialis (1787) was written by Leonhard Euler (1707–1783) during his “Berlin years."

This is the first page of Euler’s Calculus Differentialis. He began the work with a study of the calculus of finite differences.
