The scientific legacy of Poincaré ( Book )
8 editions published between 2006 and 2010 in English and French and held by 322 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Henri Poincare (1854-1912) was one of the greatest scientists of his time, perhaps the last one to have mastered and expanded almost all areas in mathematics and theoretical physics. In this book, twenty world experts present one part of Poincare's extraordinary work. Each chapter treats one theme, presenting Poincare's approach, and achievements

Destination géométrie et topologie avec Thurston ( Book )
1 edition published in 2013 in French and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
La 4e de couverture indique : Topologìe... géométrie... en petites dimensions ? Mais késako ? ! La topologie est la science qui étudie les formes en général et s'intéresse notamment aux courbes ou aux surfaces ; les topologues aiment bien d'ailleurs couper leurs surfaces le long de certaines courbes pour les recoller suivant d'autres... Les géomètres, quant à eux, sont familiers des distances, des mesures d'angles comme on l'apprend à l'école. S'appuyant sur des intuitions très géométriques, le mathématicien William Thurston (1946-2012) a proposé à la fin des années 1970 un programme de recherche pour comprendre la forme de tous les espaces de dimension 3, bouleversant par la même occasion notre façon d'appréhender ces espaces. Ce programme fut finalement mené à son terme dans les années 2000 par le mathématicien Grigori Perelman d'une manière tout aussi grandiose ! C'est un voyage guidé dans quelques-unes de ces mathématiques que nous vous proposons à travers des textes tirés de la revue Images des mathématiques

Extrait du résumé figurant sur la jaquette :Etienne, Cédric, Nicolas, Tadashi, Thierry et Alberto se retrouvent dans une maison qu'ils ont louée tout spécialement pour l'occasion. Plusieurs jours de travail et de réflexion, loin de tout, ensemble. Ça ne leur arrive pas si souvent ; et leur excitation est visible. Ils sont mathématiciens, physiciens, philosophes... Il y a l'exubérant et le taciturne, le prudent et l'optimiste, l'enthousiaste et le réticent... Tous sont venus pour évoquer celui qui fut, à un moment ou à un autre de leur vie, un inspirateur, un déclencheur, un complice, Henri Poincaré
