La correspondance entre Henri Poincaré et les physiciens, chimistes et ingénieurs by Henri Poincaré( Book )

5 editions published in 2007 in French and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

L'intérêt que portait Henri Poincaré (1854-1912) à des questions d'ordre physique a été durable et profond; elle couvre presque toute sa carrière, et marque l'histoire de la physique tout au long du 20ème siècle. Sa correspondance avec cinquante-et-un physiciens, quatre chimistes, et cinq ingénieurs commence dès 1879, lorsqu'il s'engage activement dans la recherche scientifique. Elle est rythmée par des grandes découvertes d'ordre expérimental, instrumental, et théorique : la propagation dans l'air des ondes électromagnétiques et la théorie du résonateur des années 1880-90, les rayons X, la radioactivité, et l'effet Zeeman à la fin du 19ème siècle, la confirmation de l'effet Rowland, l'infirmation des rayons N, et l'élaboration de la théorie de la relativité au début du 20ème siècle, jusqu'à la démonstration de la nécessité de l'hypothèse des quanta (1912). Sa correspondance témoigne ainsi de la physique en marche pendant une période charnière de son histoire, mais également de sa structure institutionnelle, à travers des considérations de carrière (dont sa candidature au poste de secrétaire perpétuel des sciences physiques à l'Académie des sciences) et de récompenses (dont la candidature de Poincaré et d'autres au prix Nobel de physique). L'annotation des lettres rétablit le contexte des échanges et facilite la compréhension des enjeux aux niveaux théorique, expérimental, institutionnel et personnel, faisant de ce volume une ressource de grande valeur pour l'étude de Poincaré et de la science de son temps

Henri Poincaré : a scientific biography by Jeremy Gray( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Henri Poincaré (1854-1912) was not just one of the most inventive, versatile, and productive mathematicians of all time--he was also a leading physicist who almost won a Nobel Prize for physics and a prominent philosopher of science whose fresh and surprising essays are still in print a century later. The first in-depth and comprehensive look at his many accomplishments, Henri Poincaré explores all the fields that Poincaré touched, the debates sparked by his original investigations, and how his discoveries still contribute to society today. Math historian Jeremy Gray shows that Poincaré's influence was wide-ranging and permanent. His novel interpretation of non-Euclidean geometry challenged contemporary ideas about space, stirred heated discussion, and led to flourishing research. His work in topology began the modern study of the subject, recently highlighted by the successful resolution of the famous Poincaré conjecture. And Poincaré's reformulation of celestial mechanics and discovery of chaotic motion started the modern theory of dynamical systems. In physics, his insights on the Lorentz group preceded Einstein's, and he was the first to indicate that space and time might be fundamentally atomic. Poincaré the public intellectual did not shy away from scientific controversy, and he defended mathematics against the attacks of logicians such as Bertrand Russell, opposed the views of Catholic apologists, and served as an expert witness in probability for the notorious Dreyfus case that polarized France. Richly informed by letters and documents, Henri Poincaré demonstrates how one man's work revolutionized math, science, and the greater world"--
