The Euler Committee of the Swiss Academy of Sciences was
founded in July 1907 with the task to publish all scientific books, papers and the
correspondence of Leonhard Euler (1707-1783) in a scientific edition.
Euler's books and papers are edited in the Series I-III, the
correspondence in the Series IVA. In the last 100 years 72 volumes of
the Series I-III have been published. The last two volumes are in
preparation and should appear in 2016/17. The Series IVA with Euler's
scientific correspondence will contain 9 volumes. 5 volumes have been published
and the final 4 volumes are in active preparation and should appear in 2016/17.
This huge endeavor can only succeed with the aid of internationally
acclaimed scientists as coworkers and with the financial support of the Swiss
National Science Foundation, the Swiss Academy of Sciences and many
contributions of several private foundations.

In order to support the Euler Committee's large-scale
edition project and participate in its achievement, individuals and companies may
adhere to our sponsoring association, the recently founded Bernoulli-Euler-Gesellschaft (BEG) which unifies the Leonhard Euler
Gesellschaft and the Bernoulli-Förderverein. More information and the membership
application form can be found on the BEG-homepage
of the society. One might also visit the homepage of the Bernoulli-Euler-Center (BEZ)
at the University of Basel to find more information about ongoing and planned
book about Euler's life was authored, on occasion of the Tercentenary of his birth
in 2007, by Alice and Andreas K. Heyne (text) and Elena Pini (illustrations). The
production and distribution of this amusing biographical sketch was sponsored by the
publishers, Birkhäuser (Basel); so its revenue helps to support the Euler
Committee's projects. You can order the Euler comic in the
original German version «Leonhard Euler – Ein Mann, mit dem man rechnen kann»
and in the
English translation «Leonhard Euler – A Man to be Reckoned With».
