E263 -- Specimen novae methodi curvarum quadraturas et rectificationes aliasque quantitates transcendentes inter se comparandi
(An example of a new method for the quadurature and rectificaiton of curves and of comparing other quantities which are transcendentally related to each other)
Euler presents properties of the elliptic integral.
According to C. G. J. Jacobi, a treatise with the title “Specimen novae methodi
quadraturas curvarum inveniendi” was read to the Berlin Academy on June 21, 1753.
to the records, it was presented to the St. Petersburg Academy on August 18, 1755.
