comment Why is Euclid's proof on the infinitude of primes considered a proof?
@MJD Actually I wasn't presuming that the mistake was made by Euclid. I was really believing that it was some kind of problem in my interpretation. If you look at the question, you'll notice that the argument I employed and Euclid's argument do differ. So what is wrong in this proof? means What is wrong with my interpretation and not Where did Euclid failed? - I was aware that there could be something I wasn't seeing. So This proof refeers to my interpretation of the proof.

comment Is Euler's Introductio in analysin infinitorum suitable for studying analysis today?
@egreg Do you know if there is an english translation of L'Hôpital's book? I've found only the french edition.

comment Is Euler's Introductio in analysin infinitorum suitable for studying analysis today?
Yes. That's one of the points I'm doubtful. I still don't know if the translator included such corrections. In the preface, he argues that some changes were made. Also: I guess that the non-rigorous definition could make it an good first read in analysis.
