Prof. In 1736 Euler published Mechanica which provided a major advance in mechanics. as we have mentioned. Euler made substantial contributions to differential geometry. Many unpublished results by Euler in this area were rediscovered by Gauss. O. Paul Euler had. investigating the theory of surfaces and curvature of surfaces. but the family moved to Riehen when he was one year old and it was in Riehen. some mathematical training and he was able to teach his son elementary mathematics along with other subjects. Leonhard EULER EE 209 Fundamentals of Electrical and Electronics Engineering. SEVAİOĞLU. Other geometric investigations led him to fundamental ideas in topology such as the Euler characteristic of a polyhedron.
