An amazing paragraph from Euler’s Introductio
I got the mentioned book there is a translated version published by Infintiorum and it seems a nice read. The translator mentions in the preface that the standard analysis courses puts low emphasis in the ordinary treatise of the elements of algebra and also that he fixes this defect. It’s important to notice that although the book is a translation, the translator made some edits in several parts of the book, I guess that with the intention of infinitorim it a readable piece for today’s needs.
I have studied Euler’s book firsthand I suspect unlike some of the editors who left comments above and found it to be a wonderful and illuminating book, in line with Weil’s comments.
You will gain from it a deeper understanding of analysis than from modern textbooks. It is true that Euler did not work with the derivative but he worked with the ratio of vanishing quantities a. The eminent historian of mathematics, Carl Boyer, in ijfinitorum address to the International Congress of Mathematicians incalled it the greatest modern textbook in mathematics.
For the medieval period, he chose the less well-known Al-Khowarizmi, largely devoted to algebra.
I’ve read the following quote on Wanner’s Analysis by Its History: Euler certainly was a great mathematician, but at his time analysis hadn’t yet been made fully rigorous: There did not exist proper definitions of continuity and limits. My introducto is that the book is an insightful reead, but that it shouldn’t inrtoductio replaced by a modern textbook that provides the necessary rigor.
That’s one of the points I’m doubtful. I still don’t know if the translator included such corrections. In the preface, he argues that some changes were made. I guess that the non-rigorous definition could make it an good first read in analysis. I doubt that a book where the concepts of derivative and integral are missing can be considered a good introduction to mathematical analysis.
I’ve found only the french edition. But infinltorum was in his two calculus volumes OP is talking about Euler’s precalculus book. Reading Euler is like reading a very entertaining book. Modern authors skip important steps such that you need to spend hours of understanding what they mean.
MrYouMath, I agree with your comment that Euler’s books are a great read. A word of caution, though: I was looking around the web regarding Euler’s book and found the following: Sign up or log in Sign up using Google. Sign up using Facebook. Sign up using Email and Password.
