In her lifetime, she became that rare thing – a celebrity scientist, attracting the attention of the news cameras and tabloid gossip. They were fascinated because she was the first woman to win the Nobel Prize and is still the only person to have won two Nobels in two different sciences. But while the bare bones of her scientific life, the obstacles she had to … Ler mais

John von Neumann, prophète du 21ème siècle

Le portrait saisissant d’un mathématicien de génie qui fut à l’origine de théories fondamentales et de leurs applications, de la bombe atomique à la révolution numérique

Peu connu du grand public, le mathématicien américano-hongrois John von Neumann (1903-1957) a pourtant élaboré des théories qui ont définitivement changé le cours de l’humanité. Après avoir croisé Robert Oppenheimer et Werner Heisenberg au cours de ses années d’études à l’université allemande de Göttingen, il s’installe aux États-Unis au début des années 1930. Il va contribuer aux découvertes les plus fondamentales du siècle dernier (théorie des jeux, intelligence artificielle, physique statistique, entre autres) et initier outre-Atlantique la révolution informatique.

PATRICE JEENER – Le graveur de mathématiques

Les mathématiques, si abstraites parfois imaginaires, se dessinent et se gravent sous nos yeux et sous les doigts de Patrice Jeener, artiste graveur

La Motte-Chalancon, Drôme provençale, hiver 2016.
Une silhouette enveloppée d’une cape noire arpente les rues étroites et biscornues du village médiéval. Comme sorti tout droit d’un film gothique, Patrice Jeener nous accompagne dans sa maison en marmonnant des formules mathématiques et il nous présente son travail : des centaines de gravures qui représentent des graphiques, des concepts et des objets mathématiques.

Savez-vous à quoi ressemble un hyperboloïde à deux nappes ? Ou un hypercube à 7 dimensions ? Patrice … Ler mais

Einstein et la Relativité Générale, une histoire singulière

Cet anniversaire (2015) est l’occasion de rappeler l’importance paradoxale de la théorie dans le monde scientifique

La théorie de la Relativité Générale d’Albert Einstein a révolutionné notre conception de la gravitation, de l’espace et du temps. D’abord encensée, puis oubliée, et redécouverte, l’histoire de cette théorie centenaire a marqué l’histoire scientifique du XXème siècle. Dès sa naissance, surgit un problème mathématique qui aurait pu tuer la théorie dans l’oeuf : la singularité de Schwarzschild.

Accompagné par des grands physiciens relativistes internationaux, le film nous emmène à la découverte de cette théorie au destin singulier. … Ler mais

Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz – In search of a universal formula

The documentary portrays the genius Leibniz in his time and repeatedly transports him to the present

November 2016 marked the 300th anniversary of the death of Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz. He was a philosopher, mathematician, historian, diplomat, lawyer and much more besides. Leibniz ranks as the last universal genius. His discoveries and revolutionization of the number system first made computers, the Internet and social networks at all possible.

A major part of his heritage may be found in Hanover, where Leibniz worked for 40 years as a librarian and counsellor at the court of the duke. … Ler mais

Richard Feynman: Fun to Imagine

Using physics to explain how the world works

Richard Feynman (1918-88) was one of the most remarkable and gifted theoretical physicists of any generation. He was also known as the ‘Great Explainer’ because of his passion for helping non-scientists to imagine something of the beauty and order of the universe as he saw it.

In this series, Feynman looks at the mysterious forces that make ordinary things happen and, in doing so, answers questions about why rubber bands are stretchy, why tennis balls can’t bounce for ever and … Ler mais

This Documentary describes Pythagoras. It was produced by Cromwell Productions in 1996.

Pythagoras (fl. 530 BCE) must have been one of the world’s greatest men, but he wrote nothing, and it is hard to say how much of the doctrine we know as Pythagorean is due to the founder of the society and how much is later development.

It is also hard to say how much of what we are told about the life of Pythagoras is trustworthy; for a … Ler mais
