  VARIATIONS - LoveToKnow Article on VARIATIONS   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-08-16)
Euler had been under the necessity of resolving an integral into a sum of elements, recording the magnitude of the change produced in each element by a slight change in the unknown function, and thence forming an expression for the total change in the sum under consideration.
Euler had allowed such changes in the position of the curve, along which the integral, to be made a maximum or minimum, is taken, as can be produced by displacement parallel to the axis of ordinates.
The line integral may, as usual, be replaced by the sum of line integrals taken round a series of cells, the external boundaries of the set of cells being identical with the given contour, and the internal boundaries of ad- B jacent cells being traversed twice in opposite senses.

 Euler, Leonhard
By means of his numerous books and memoirs that he submitted to the academy, Euler carried integral calculus to a higher degree of perfection, developed the theory of trigonometric and logarithmic functions, reduced analytical operations to a greater simplicity, and threw new light on nearly all parts of pure mathematics.
He is known for familiar results in elementary geometry; for example, the Euler line through the orthocentre (the intersection of the altitudes in a triangle), the circumcentre (the centre of the circumscribed circle of a triangle), and the barycentre (the "centre of gravity," or centroid) of a triangle.
Throughout his life Euler was much absorbed by problems dealing with the theory of numbers, which treats of the properties and relationships of integers, or whole numbers (0, +/-1, +/-2, etc.); in this, his greatest discovery, in 1783, was the law of quadratic reciprocity, which has become an essential part of modern number theory.

Euler enriched mathematics with important new concepts and techniques and is credited with having given the notation f (x) for a function, e for the base of natural logarithms, i for the square root of -1,
Euler was born and educated in the Swiss town of Basle.

 Leonhard Euler (1707 - 1783)
Euler commenced this part by dividing curves into algebraical and transcendental, and established a variety of propositions which are true for all algebraical curves.
The method used by Lagrange is described in Euler's integral calculus, and is the same as that given in most modern text-books on the subject.
This method is not convenient, but it was from Euler's results that Mayer constructed the lunar tables for which his widow in 1770 received 5000 pounds from the English parliament, and in recognition of Euler's services a sum of 300 pounds was also voted as an honorarium to him.

Her thesis on zeros of integral functions was examined by J E Littlewood who she met for the first time as an external examiner in her oral examination for the D.Phil.
It is divided into two parts, of two and five volumes respectively, on the differential and integral calculus, and included not only the standard treatment of the derivative and the integral and their applications to geometry but also substantial sections on the theory of functions, determinants and elliptic functions.
This generalisation of the Riemann integral revolutionised the integral calculus.

 Physics Help and Math Help - Physics Forums - Justification of Action Integral
It would seem that the Action integral for the world sheets of string theory are presently justified as a higher dimensional version.
And String theory poses that the Action Integral is protortional to the surface area of the string.
The initial and final position of the string seem to be imposed as limits on the integral in an a priori fashion and then the symmetries and vanishing variation are employed after that.

Isoperimetric problems(1) are ones where an integral is to be optimized subject to a constraint which is another integral having a specified value.
In this approach the partial differential equations are converted to the corresponding integral to be optimized from the calculus of variations.
Then approximate methods of integration are used to find the minimum of the integral, and this yields the concentration, temperature and/or velocity profiles required for the solution of the original differential equations.

For y=1,2,…, the integral vanishes; this is canceled by the infinite values of the term in front of the integral.
We have seen that it is possible to replace the integral for Γ(z) along a half line by a contour integral which converges for all values of z.
Since the integral is analytic in the cut plane, the theorem holds for x in this region as well; also we apply the analytic continuation with respect to b and c in order to arrive at the conditions announced in the formulation of the theorem.

 Sensible Calculus CHV.A: The Definite Integral
The sums used in Euler's method (Chapter IV.***) to estimate the solution to a differential equation of the form f '(x) = P(x) where P was a continuous function had at least two interpretations, one related to motion and one related to areas.
The interpretation of the definite integral as the net change in position is now seen as the change s(b)-s(a), that is the definite integral represents the vertical change in the integral curve over the interval [a,b].
Since the integral for P measures the area of the region, the integral for Q must be the opposite of the area of the region enclosed by the graph of Q, the X-axis, and the lines X=a and X=b.

A good first example to illustrate Euler's method is our favorite DE from the time of Calculus, namely dy/dx =y, say with initial value y(0)=1, so that y=exp(x) is the solution.
The upper graph is of the exponential function, the lower graph is of your Euler approximation.
In the same vein as ``improved Euler'' we can use the Simpson approximation for the integral instead of the Trapezoid one, and this leads to the Runge-Kutta method which is widely used in real software.

Abstract: The Kontsevich integral of a knot is a graph-valued invariant which (when graded by the Vassiliev degree of graphs) is characterized by a universal property; namely it is a universal Vassiliev invariant of knots.
We introduce a second grading of the Kontsevich integral, the Euler degree, and a geometric null-move on the set of knots.

 Integrator for non-pointlike body acted on by changing force(s)? - GameDev.Net Discussion Forums   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-08-16)
the point is these are axact integrals that are valid for as long a timestep as you want.
Under a force which can be given an equation we can often generate an exact integral, even in the case of damped simple harmonic motion, to get position at any time in the future.
This is Euler integrator, and it's not much better than x += dt*v, I think, because the velocity is integrated in the simple way: v+=dt*a, so velocity will be inaccurate, and in the position change formula (x += dt*v + 0.5*dt*dt*a) v is dominant.
