Euler made very good use of the conflict years until eventually the particular beginning of the Berlin Academy in January of 1746. except the seven already pointed out, and twelve extra, memoirs, certainly one of which earned him the prize of the Paris Academy, the indefatigable Euler wrote approximately 2 hundred letters, a few very vast, and ﬁve books, which this present day are counted between his important works157. of those memoirs, one is principally interesting inasmuch because it is obviously adapted to nonmathematicians; particularly potentially, ecu- sixty three 3 The Berlin interval 1741–1766 ler may have written it for his new organisation, King Frederick II, have been it now not composed in Latin.
