Mechanical EngineeringEdit

Euler made important formulae for the buckling of colums which are not dicussed here.

You are free to edit the article. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2A00:23C0:7C80:8401:50CF:B190:E3A6:2BD6 (talk) 17:45, 14 February 2019 (UTC)

Expressions That May Lead to ConfusionEdit

Section 2.1 Mathematical notation, line 3: He also introduced ... the letter e for the base of the natural logarithm (now also known as Euler's number)

Section 2.5 ... describing numerous applications of ... Euler numbers

It is hard to distinguish between Euler's number and Euler number. Although there are seperate pages devoted to the two concepts, this may still lead to confusion for beginners and those who use English as a foreign language. Shouldn't there be "see also" links behind both expressions?

Semi-protected edit request on 21 August 2018Edit

To improve English usage, change "reminding his interest for the Seven Bridges of Königsberg (see above). The device knew a renewed interest..." to "recalling his interest in the Seven Bridges of Königsberg (see above). The device drew renewed interest..." Isoper (talk) 15:29, 21 August 2018 (UTC)

  Done, thanks! Also, I believe your account is now autoconfirmed - you should be able to edit semi-protected articles yourself going forward. ‑‑ElHef (Meep?) 17:25, 21 August 2018 (UTC)

I may have spotted an error in "Eyesight deterioration" sectionEdit

It is stated in the article that an operation was attempted a few weeks after the discovery of the cataract. However I found conflicting information in these sources:
