Henri Poincaré. A Life in the Service of Science

  title={Henri Poincar{\'e}. A Life in the Service of Science},
  author={Jean Mawhin},
1032 NOTICES OF THE AMS VOLUME 52, NUMBER 9 Introduction In 1954 the scientific community celebrated the 100th anniversary of Henri Poincare’s birth. At that time, Poincare’s fame was not at its highest point among mathematicians, and the spirit of Hilbert dominated most mathematical minds. His fame was also not at its highest point among physicists, as physics was then essentially concerned with quantum theory. Nevertheless, the celebration was important in the many places where Poincare’s… 

A Biography of Henri Poincar\'e - 2012 Centenary of the Death of Poincar\'e

On January 4, 2012, the centenary of Henri Poincaré's death, a colloquium was held in Nancy, France the subject of which was "Vers une biographie d’Henri Poincaré". Scholars discussed several

Henri Poincaré and partial differential equations

Henri Poincaré has been professor of mathematical physics and probabilities from 1886 until 1896, when he exchanged this chair for that of theoretical astronomy and celestial mechanics left vacant by

Poincaré’s works leading to the Poincaré conjecture

In the last decade, the Poincaré conjecture has probably been the most famous statement among all the contributions of Poincaré to the mathematics community. There have been many papers and books

Some elements for a history of the dynamical systems theory.

The purpose is to exhibit the diversity in the paths and to bring some elements-which were never published-illustrating the atmosphere of this period of chaos theory, and to provide a direct testimony of how contributors can be influenced by other scientists or works.

We describe various errors in the mathematical literature, and consider how some of them might have been avoided, or at least detected at an earlier stage, using tools such as Maple or Sage. Our

Generation of Synchronous Unpredictable Oscillations by Coupled Hopfield Neural Networks

A new criterion based on generalized synchronization is provided for the extension of unpredictable oscillations among coupled Hopfield neural networks (HNNs). It is shown that if a drive HNN
