Mechanical Engineering[edit]

Euler made important formulae for the buckling of colums which are not dicussed here.

Expressions That May Lead to Confusion[edit]

Section 2.1 Mathematical notation, line 3: He also introduced ... the letter e for the base of the natural logarithm (now also known as Euler's number)

Section 2.5 ... describing numerous applications of ... Euler numbers

It is hard to distinguish between Euler's number and Euler number. Although there are seperate pages devoted to the two concepts, this may still lead to confusion for beginners and those who use English as a foreign language. Shouldn't there be "see also" links behind both expressions?

Legend...[edit]

"famous legend[63] inspired by Euler's arguments with secular philosophers over religion" etc is a lengthy paragraph about an incident that according to all available evidence, did never happen, and in contrast, falsifies the relation between Euler and Diderot that was cordial despite their different philosophical view. In my view, it does not merit more text than a few words debunking the legend. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 77.73.244.218 (talk) 11:30, 22 February 2017 (UTC)
