Augustin-Louis Cauchy : a biography by Bruno Belhoste( Book )

17 editions published between 1991 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 569 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A great difficulty facing a biographer of Cauchy is that of delineating the curious interplay between the man, his times, and his scientific endeavors. Professor Belhoste has succeeded admirably in meeting this challenge and has thus written a vivid biography that is both readable and informative. His subject stands out as one of the most brilliant, versatile, and prolific fig ures in the annals of science. Nearly two hundred years have now passed since the young Cauchy set about his task of clarifying mathematics, extending it, applying it wherever possible, and placing it on a firm theoretical footing. Through Belhoste's work we are afforded a detailed, rather personalized picture of how a first rate mathematician worked at his discipline - his strivings, his inspirations, his triumphs, his failures, and above all, his conflicts and his errors

Les grands corps de l'État n'ont pas toujours bonne presse, mais, en même temps, ils fascinent. Créé au XVIIIe siècle, le corps des Mines n'a cessé de contribuer à la construction économique du pays. Passés par l'École polytechnique et l'École des mines, les ingénieurs du corps ont surveillé et, souvent, directement encadré les secteurs de l'industrie et de l'énergie. Ils ont également joué un rôle éminent dans le domaine scientifique, leurs contributions allant des sciences "dures" (mathématiques et physique, avec Henri Poincaré, chimie avec Henry Le Chatelier) à l'économie, avec Maurice Allais, le seul Français ayant reçu le prix Nobel d'économie, et aussi la sociologie, avec Frédéric Le Play, considéré comme l'un des précurseurs de cette discipline. Industriel dans son essence, industrialiste dans son esprit, ce corps de fonctionnaires a souvent adopté des approches libérales, mais, a contrario, il a souvent impulsé un patriotisme économique de bon aloi dans le cadre de "grands programmes" d'État. Il restait à la richesse de cette expérience, à la fois technique, scientifique et administrative, à se constituer en histoire, à se "conscientiser". Telle était l'ambition du colloque dont les actes sont présentés dans ce volume. Organisé dans le cadre de la célébration du deux centième anniversaire du décret du 18 novembre 1810 qui a organisé le "Corps impérial des Ingénieurs des Mines", ce colloque historique s'est attaché à mettre en lumière le rôle joué au service de la France par ces hauts fonctionnaires à formation scientifique et technique. The senior civil service branches do not always get a good press, but they are fascinating subjects. The Civil Service Engineering Corps has worked tirelessly on the country's economic construction ever since it was first set up in the 18th century. Civil service engineers, trained at the Ecole Polytechnique institute of technology and the Ecole des Mines national post-graduate engineering school, have supervised
