How does water, or indeed any fluid, move? The Euler equations let us look beneath the surface and mark the beginning of modern fluid dynamics.
There are a million things in maths named after Leonard Euler. Here's a beautiful formula involving complex numbers.
After 2000 years of searching we only know of 51 perfect numbers and they're all even. What else do and don't we know about these rare and precious jewels of maths?
Perfect numbers have foxed mathematicians for over 2000 years. Here's a quick look at the long struggle to find them.
Here's a quick introduction to the beauty queen amongst mathematical formulas.
This surprising result about 3D shapes tells us something deep about the nature of space.
Euler may not have cracked this problem completely, but it led to a lot of important work, including on what we today know as sudoku.
Can you move a knight on a chessboard so that it visits every square exactly once? Euler was one of the first to analyse this problem systematically, but some questions about it are still open today.
