My friend Gene Chase is teaching a history of mathematics class at Messiah College this semester. He asked me if I was interested in giving a visiting lecture in his class in a few weeks. The topic: Leonhard Euler.
He said that I could talk about whatever I wanted. Wow, the possibilities!
So I was thinking about giving a biography of Euler followed by “Euler’s greatest hits.” This is where you come in.
You probably know my favorite theorem of Euler’s. What are your favorites? Please leave them in the comments. List as many as you want. The more, the better.
