Henri Poincaré is a French mathematician, physicist, philosopher and engineer, born April 29, 1854 in Nancy and died July 17, 1912 in Paris.

Poincaré has carried out major work in optics and infinitesimal computing. His advances on the problem of the three bodies make him a founder of the qualitative study of the systems of differential equations and the theory of chaos; he is also a major precursor of the theory of special relativity and of the theory of dynamic systems.

He is considered as one of the last great universal scientists, mastering all the branches of mathematics of his time and certain branches of physics.
