Institutionum calculi integralis, Volume 1
Concerning the resolution of more complicated differential equations. Products of the two kinds are considered, and the integrands are expanded as infinite series in certain ways.
Euler derives some very pretty calcupi for the integration of these simple higher order derivatives, but as he points out, the selection is limited to only a few choice kinds.
Click here for the 12 th chapter: A very neat way is found of introducing integrating factors into the solution of the equations considered, which gradually increase in complexity.
This is the end of Euler’s original Book One.
The resolution of differential equations of the third or higher orders which involve only two variables. A number of situations are examined for certain institutionuk equations, and rules are set out for the evaluation of particular integrals. Euler had evidently spent a great deal of time investigating such series solutions of integrals, and again one wonders at his remarkable industry.

Euler proceeds to investigate a wide class of integral of this form, relating these to the Wallis product, etc. Euler moves away from homogeneous equations and establishes the integration factors for a number of general first order differential equations.

Click here calcuoi the 8 th chapter: From the general form established, he is able after some effort, to derive results amongst other things, relating to the inverse sine, cosine, and the log.
Whereby we shall set out this argument more carefully.
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.
Click here for the 4 th chapter: Serious difficulties arise when the algebraic equation has multiple roots, and the method of partial integration is institutionumm however, Euler tries to get round this difficulty with an arithmetical theorem, which is not successful, but at least provides a foundation for the case of unequal roots, and the subsequent work of Cauchy on complex integration is required to solve this difficulty.
This method is applied to a number of examples, including the log function.
Oh no, there’s been an error
This chapter is rather labour intensive as regards the number of formulas to be typed out; however, modern computing makes even this task easier.
Progressively more difficult differentials are tackled, which often can be integrated by an infinite series expansion. This chapter ends the First Section of Book I. Click here for the 8 th Chapter: Euler himself seems to have been impressed with his efforts. This is a continuation of the previous chapter, in which the mathematics is more elaborate, and on which Euler clearly spent some time.
I hope that people will come with me on this great journey: The idea of solving such 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. If anything, the chapter sets the stage for an iterative program of some kind, and thus is of a general nature, while what to do in case of diverging quantities is given the most thought.
Euler’s abilities seemed to know no end, and in these texts well ordered formulas march from page to page according to some grand design. These solutions are found always by initially assuming that y is fixed, an integrating factor is found for the remaining equation, and then the complete solution is found in two ways that must agree.
Particular simple cases involving logarithmic functions are presented first; the work involves integration by parts, which can be performed in two ways if needed. Click here for the 1 st chapter: This is a most interesting chapter, in which Euler cheats a little and writes down a biquadratic equation, from which he derives a general differential equation for such transcendental functions. Euler declares that while the complete integral includes an unspecified constant: These details are sketched here briefly, and you need to read the chapter to find out what is going on in a more coherent manner.
Click here for the single chapter: Eventually he devises a shorthand way of writing such infinite products or their integrals, and investigates their properties on this basis. The examples are restricted to forms of X above for which the algebraic equation has itnegralis roots.
The emphasis is now on degenerate cases, which arise when the roots of the indicial equation are equal or imaginary, and the ln function is introduced as a multiplier of one of the series; there is a desire to obtain the complete integral for these more trying cases. However, if you are a student, teacher, or just someone with an interest, you can copy part or intgralis of the work for legitimate personal or educational uses. Euler finds to his chagrin that there is to be no magic bullet arising from the separation of the variables approach, and he presents an assortment of methods depending on special transformations for particular families of first order differential equations; he obviously spent a great deal of time examining such cases and this chapter is a testimony to these trials.
This task is to be continued in the next chapter. Click here for some introductory materialin which Euler defines integration as the inverse process of differentiation. Following which a more general form of differential expression is integrated, applicable to numerous cases, which gives rise to an iterative expression for the coefficients of successive powers of the independent variable.
A number of examples of the procedure instiitutionum put in place, and the work was clearly one of Euler’s ongoing projects.
