Leonhard Euler
Blind Mathematician or
Life Long Astronomer
by Dan St.John

Without dissent Euler is by far the most prolific and influential mathematician in history. But, you may be surprised to learn that he was a life long astronomer from his early years at the St. Petersburg Observatory to his discussions the day he died, on the orbit of the newly discovered planet Uranus. During his life Euler applied his amazing intellect to the most pressing problems of the day. His pioneering work in Astronomy was recognized with six of the twelve prizes he won from the Paris Academy of Sciences.

In this lecture, Dan St. John will discuss the many contributions of Leonhard Euler to the field of Astronomy; reviewing along the way Euler's unparalleled contributions to the field of Mathematics and their effects on an amazing number of disciplines.
