Poincaré Seminar


French version / version française


 
 

The Poincaré Seminar has been founded in 2001.

The goal of this seminar is to provide information on topics of current interest in physics. Its way of working is directly inspired by the seminar Bourbaki in mathematics, hence is nicknamed « Bourbaphy ». A series of pedagogical talks will aim at explaining a topic of current interest both from a theoretical and an experimental point of view, possibly complemented by a historical introduction. A booklet with the contributions of the speakers will be distributed on the day of the seminar, and a book is usually published some months later in the « Progress in Mathematical Physics » series by Birkhäuser. The seminar aims at a general audience of mathematicians and physicists and does not require any specialized knowledge.

The last seminar took place on Saturday, November 29 2014. It was devoted to:
