E298 -- De insigni promotione methodi tangentium inversae

(On the notable advancement of the inverse method of tangents)


Euler considers the problems that arise from mixed differential and difference equations. For example: the problem of reciprocal trajectory.

According to C. G. J. Jacobi, a treatise with this title was read to the Berlin Academy on September 3, 1761.
