Dr. Euler's Fabulous Formula:
Cures Many Mathematical Ills
Paul J. Nahin
With a new preface by the author

Book Description
Introduction [in PDF format] | Table of Contents [PDF only]

ADDITIONAL REVIEWS:

"It is very difficult to sum up the greatness of Euler. . . . This excellent book goes a long way to explaining the kind of mathematician he really was."--Mathematics Today

"The author conducts a fascinating tour through pure and applied mathematics, physics, and engineering, from the ethereal heights of number theory to the earthiness of constructing speech scramblers. . . . [T]his is a marvelous book that will illuminate the mathematical landscape of complex numbers and their many applications."--Henry Ricardo, Mathematics Teacher

"This is a book for mathematicians who enjoy historically motivated mathematical explanations on a high mathematical level."--Eberhard Knobloch, Mathematical Reviews

"It is a 'popular' book, written for a general reader with some mathematical background equivalent to a first-year undergraduate course in the UK."--Robin Wilson, London Mathematical Society Newsletter

ADDITIONAL ENDORSEMENTS:

"If you ever wondered about the beauties and powers of mathematics, this book is a treasure trove. Paul Nahin uses Euler's formula as the magic key to unlock a wealth of surprising consequences, ranging from number theory to electronics, presented clearly, carefully, and with verve."--Peter Pesic, St. John's College

"The range and variety of topics covered here is impressive. I found many little gems that I have never seen before in books of this type. Moreover, the writing is lively and enthusiastic and the book is highly readable."--Des Higham, University of Strathclyde, Glasgow
