E292 -- Du mouvement de rotation des corps solides autour d'un axe variable

(On the movement of rotation of solid bodies around a variable axis)

(based on C. Truesdell's An idiot's fugitive essays on science: methods, criticisms, training, circumstances)
Euler shows that every body has at least one set of three orthogonal principal axes. This paper gives rise to a branch of algebra.
