Poincaré, Jules Henri
(1854-1912), French physicist and
mathematician, born in Nancy. Poincaré made contributions
to differential equations, topology, probability, the theory of
functions, and analytical mechanics. His studies included
research into the electromagnetic theory of light and into
electricity, fluid mechanics, heat transfer, and
thermodynamics. He also anticipated chaos theory
