E285 -- Investigatio functionum ex data differentialium conditione
(Investigation of functions from a given condition of differentials)
Euler integrates many first-order partial differential equations with two independent variables.
According to C. G. J. Jacobi, a treatise with this title was read to the Berlin Academy on March
According to the records, it was presented to the St. Petersburg Academy on December
