Volume I, Section I. This is also a long but very interesting chapter wherein Euler develops the solution of general second order equations in two variables, with non-zero first order terms, in terms of series that may be finite or infinite; the coefficients include arbitrary functions of x and y in addition, leading to majestic formulas which are examined in cases of interest — especially the case of vibrating strings where the line density changes, and equations dealing with the propagation of sound.

The relatively easy task of setting up an infinite series for the integral chosen is accomplished; after which considerable attention is paid to series that end abruptly due to the introduction of a zero term in the iteration, thus providing algebraic solutions.

Various cases where the integral diverges are considered, and where the divergence may be removed by transforming the integrand. In this chapter there is a move into functions of two variables. Indtitutionum this final chapter of this part, a number of techniques are examined for the approximation of a first order differential equation; this is in addition to that elaborated on above in Section I, CH.

This chapter starts by considering the integral as the sum of infinitesimal strips of width dx, from which Euler forms upper and lower sums or bounds on the integral, for a dissection of the domain of integration into sections.

This is a long but interesting chapter similar to the two above, but applied to more complex differential equations; at first an equation resembling that of a vibrating string is investigated, and the general solution found. The examples are restricted to forms of X above for which the algebraic equation has well-known roots. Other situations to be shown arise in which an asymptotic line is evident as a solution, while some solutions may not be valid.


This is set equal to a chosen function Uwhich is itself differentiated w. Here Euler lapses in his discussion of convergence of infinite series; part of the trouble seems to be the lack of an analytic instithtionum of approaching a limit, with which he has no institutionym in the geometric situations we have looked at previously, as in his Mechanica.

Concerning the integration of differential formulas involving logarithmic and exponential functions.

Oh no, there’s been an error

This chapter follows on from the previous one: Euler admits that this is a more powerful method than the separation of variables in finding solutions to such equations, where some differential quantity is kept constant.

This is a harder chapter to master, and more has been written by way of notes by me, though some parts have been left for you to discover for yourself.

I have decided to start with the integration, as it shows the uses of calculus, and above all it is very interesting and probably quite unlike any calculus text you will have read already. This is the last chapter in this section.

Euler had evidently spent a great deal of time investigating such series solutions of integrals, and again one wonders at his remarkable industry. The idea of solving isntitutionum equations in a step—like manner is introduced; most of the equations tackled have some other significance, such as relating to the radius of curvature of some curve, etc. Again, particular simple cases involving sines or powers of sines and another function in a product are integrated in two ways by the product rule for integrals.

Euler declares inttegralis while the complete integral includes an unspecified constant: I hope that people will come with me on this great journey: Euler establishes the solution of some differential equations in which there is an easy relation between the two derivatives p and q.


Those who delight in such things can see the exponential function set out as we know it, and various integrations performed, including the derivation of some very cute series, as Euler himself notes in so many words. Much labour is involved in creating the coefficients of the cosines of the multiple angles.

Click here for the 2 nd chapter: The methods used are clear enough, but one wonders at the insights and originality of parts of the work. This is a chapter devoted to insfitutionum solution of one kind of differential equation, where the integrating factor is simply xdx. Calculli difficulties arise when the algebraic equation has multiple roots, and the method of partial integration is used; however, Euler tries to get round this difficulty with an arithmetical theorem, which is not successful, but at inntegralis provides a foundation for the case of unequal roots, and the subsequent work of Cauchy on complex integration is required to solve this difficulty.

Examples are provided of course. In these examples a finite equation is obtained between some of the variables, as x disappears. He then shows how this criterion can be applied to several differential equations to show that they are in calcculi integrable, other than by using an integrating factor ; this includes a treatment of the normal distribution function.

The method is extended to forms involving the second degree.

Whereby we shall set out this argument more carefully. Concerning the integration of simple differential formulas of the second order. Concerning the development of integrals as infinite products. The historian of mathematics will be integrslis to know that the arbitrary form of the function f:
