It happened on SEPTEMBER 18

Leonhard Euler died. A Swiss mathematician and physicist, he made important contributions to mathematical analysis and rational mechanics. He was the son of a Calvinist minister and, before settling on mathematics, he studied theology, oriental languages, and physiology. In fluid dynamics, the Euler equations express the conservation of the components that comprise the quantity of motion, thus establishing rules for motion in a perfect (inviscid) fluid. Euler angles are a set of three rotations (precession, nutation, and intrinsic) that unequivocally represent the position of a (rigid) object in space.
