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
