Please join us On Sunday, August 5 at 1:00 pm for the Euler Lecture, the Euler Society's annual invited lecture.

This year's Euler Lecturer is **William Dunham** the Truman Koehler
Professor of Mathematics at Muhlenberg College. Bill's talk is
titled *Euler in Three Acts.*

**Abstract**: In this talk, we recognize Euler's
tercentenary with a three-part examination of his remarkable output.

Act I provides an overview of his work to suggest the depth and diversity of his life's achievement. Act II considers the 1737 derivation of the "Euler product-sum formula" and its use in proving the divergence of the reciprocals of the primes - arguably the birth of analytic number theory. Finally, in Act III we see Euler's evaluation of a non-trivial integral in which he cleverly enlisted the aid of two illustrious predecessors.

Taken together, these results indicate why Euler's 300th birthday is so worthy of a mathematical celebration.
