The publications that Dirichlet offered from late 1839 until his travel to Italy in 1843 had a common theme. It was that of progressing on the new pathways opened as the result of his reflecting on the successful technique he had applied to the proof of the theorem on arithmetic progressions. He wished to explore further the possibilities of linking number-theoretic questions to infinitesimal analysis, in particular, the use of his L-series and functions, suggested by Euler’s Chapter 15 of the Introduction to Analysis of the Infinite [Euler 1748].
