E479 -- Nova methodus motum corporum rigidorum degerminandi
(A new method for generating the motion of a rigid body)
(based on C. Truesdell's An idiot's fugitive essays on science: methods, criticisms, training,
In contrast to Euler's treatment in E177,
in this paper, he considers mechanics for three-dimensional regions in general.
