Henri Poincaré


French mathematician, theoretical physicist, engineer, and philosopher of science, often described as a polymath, and in mathematics as The Last Universalist by Eric Temple Bell, since he excelled in all fields of the discipline as it existed during his lifetime.

He was appointed the Professor of Mathematical physics and calculus in 1886 and ten years later succeeded Tisserand in the Chair of Celestial Mechanics. Achieving a Doctorate degree in Science in 1879, he resided in Paris and soon became well known at the University. He received many prizes for his work and wrote 13 volumes, "Cours de Physique."

Poincare died on 17 July 1912, aged 58, in Paris.
