E180 -- Avertissement au sujet des recherches sur la precession des equinoxes

(Notice on the subject of Research on the precession of the equinoxes)


Euler cedes priority to d'Alembert for the first resolution of the problem of precession of the equinoxes and nutation of the earth's axis (solved by Euler in E171) and for the first published example of an equation whose graph exhibits a cuspidal point of the second kind (see E169)
