Collecting references to Euler

Standing on the shoulders of giants.

Who is Euler? How did he come to his work on exponentiation? How important was exponentiation to him? Was it a most fundamental function of the universe?

This page will focus on Euler, his life, his influence, and his equations. A page on exponentiation will attempt to understand in what ways multiplication/division is more fundamental than addition/subtraction.

Is exponentiation a fundamental dynamic that gives rise to the first space-time moment?
