Leibniz was a noted polymath who was deeply interested in philosophy as well as mathematics, among other things. From my mathematical readings I have the impression that Leibniz's stature as a ...
Would Euler's proofs get published in a modern math Journal, especially considering his treatment of the Infinite?
I was wondering how mathematicians of today would treat, for example, Euler's proof of zeta(2). In William Dunham's book 'Journey through Genius' ( ...
