(Theorems about the divisors of numbers contained in the form paa ± qbb )


A first page footnote by Rudio warns us that Euler says that most of these theorems are known to him only by "induction;" their proofs appear in other places. This seems to be a forgotten little article, hardly any proofs, but it contains a lot of conjectures that kept him going for the next several years.

According to the records, it was presented to the St. Petersburg Academy on September 23, 1748.
