But, partly due to the overwhelming dominance of the Bernoulli family in Swiss mathematics, and the difficulty of finding a good position and recognition in his hometown, he spent most of his academic life in Russia and Germany, especially in the burgeoning St. Petersburg of Peter the Great and Catherine the Great.
I will try to do this today with the hope to be able to shed some light on a rather bizarre attack which will nevertheless have profound consequences. To believe that it would require you to find the following sequence logical: Then, the US declares that overthrowing Assad is not a priority anymore up to here this is all factual and true.
Then, Assad decides to use weapons he does not have. He decides to bomb a location with no military value, but with lots of kids and cameras.
Then, when the Russians demand a full investigation, the Americans strike as fast as they can before this idea gets any support. And now the Americans are probing a possible Russian role in this so-called attack. Frankly, if you believe any of that, you should immediately stop reading and go back to watching TV.
For the rest of us, there are three options: This option requires you to believe in coincidences. Unless, the US fed bad intelligence to the Syrians and got them to bomb a location where the US knew that toxic gas was stored.
What is evident is that the Syrians did not drop chemical weapons from their aircraft and that no chemical gas was ever stored at the al-Shayrat airbase. There is no footage showing any munitions or containers which would have delivered the toxic gas.
As for US and other radar recordings, all they can show is that an aircraft was in the sky, its heading, altitude and speed. There is no way to distinguish a chemical munition or a chemical attack by means of radar.
Whatever option you chose, the Syrian government is obviously and self-evidently innocent of the accusation of having used chemical weapons. This is most likely a false flag attack. Also, and just for the record, the US had been considering exactly such a false flag attack in the past. You can read everything about this plan here and here.
American and Russian sources both agree on the following facts: The US did not consult with the Russians on a political level, but through military channels the US gave Russia 2 hours advance warning.
At this point the accounts begin to differ. The Americans say that all missiles hit their targets. The Russians say that only 23 cruise missiles hit the airfield.
Here I think that it is indisputable that the Americans are lying and the Russians are saying the truth: Furthermore, the Syrian Air Force resumed its operations within 24 hours. That is a fact. It is also indisputable that there were no chemical munitions at this base as nobody, neither the Syrians nor the Russian reporters, had to wear any protective gear.
The missiles used in the attack, the Tomahawk, can use any combination of three guidance systems: GPS, inertial navigation and terrain mapping.
There is no evidence and even no reports that the Russians shot even a single air-defense missile. While the Tomahawk cruise missile was developed in the s, there is no reason to believe that the missiles used had exceeded their shelf live and there is even evidence that they were built in The Tomahawk is known to be accurate and reliable.
There is absolutely no basis to suspect that over half of the missiles fired simply spontaneously malfunctioned. I therefore see only two possible explanations for what happened to the 36 missing cruise missiles:Leonhard Euler, (born April 15, , died Sept. 18, ), was the most prolific mathematician in history.
His books and articles represent about one third of the entire body of research on mathematics, theoretical physics, and engineering mechanics published between and From the reviews: “This is the wittiest biography of Euler I have ever read. The two authors of the text and the artist are extremely well acquainted with all aspects of Euler’s life.
. Life Early years. Leonhard Euler was born on 15 April , in Basel, Switzerland to Paul III Euler, a pastor of the Reformed Church, and Marguerite née Brucker, a pastor's daughter. Euler is well known in analysis for his Institutions: Imperial Russian Academy of Sciences, Berlin Academy.

Analysis - Ordinary differential equations: Analysis is one of the cornerstones of mathematics. It is important not only within mathematics itself but also because of its extensive applications to the sciences.
The main vehicles for the application of analysis are differential equations, which relate the rates of change of various quantities to their current values, making it possible—in.
