ab: The article briefly presents some of the more advanced things Euler did,
such as his \lq\lq 4 squares identity\rq\rq , Euler\rq s proofs of
several theorems by Fermat, the introduction of several new functions
into mathematics, and his contributions for applied mathematics,
especially the calculus of variations. In the end, a few comments are
made on the gigantic extent of Euler\rq s mathematical work.
