Content Summary

This is one of Euler's most famous papers: the Königsberg bridge problem. It is often cited as the earliest paper in both topology and graph theory. In it, Euler reduces the problem to an analysis of the degrees of vertices on a graph, eventually determining that the Königsberg bridge problem is unsolvable.
