Observations about the roots of equations
According to Eneström, this work concerns the formula for the sum of the pth power of the roots of an nth-order algebraic equation. Euler also looks at the meaning of this formula when the sequence that occurs in it is continued to infinity. Additionally, he considers the solution of trinomial equations, along with the correlation between ordinary equations and differential equations.
