E112 -- Recherches sur le mouvement des corps célestes en général

(Studies on the movement of celestial bodies in general)

(based on C. Truesdell's An idiot's fugitive essays on science: methods, criticisms, training, circumstances)
Euler looks at finite systems and says that for a single point mass, ∫ f dM = fM. He also introduces for the first time the Newtonian equations.

According to C. G. J. Jacobi, a treatise with this title was presented to the Berlin Academy on June 8, 1747.
