About this book

Comment Fatou et Julia ont inventé ce que l’on appelle aujourd’hui les ensembles de Julia, avant, pendant et après la première guerre mondiale? L’histoire est racontée, avec ses mathématiques, ses conflits, ses personnalités. Elle est traitée à partir de sources nouvelles, et avec rigueur. On pourra s’y initier à l’itération des fractions rationnelles et à la dynamique complexe (ensembles de Julia, de Mandelbrot, ensembles-limites). Qui étaient Pierre Fatou, Gaston Julia, Paul Montel? On y trouvera en particulier des informations sur un mathématicien mal connu, Pierre Fatou. On découvrira aussi quelques incidences de la blessure reçue par Julia pendant la guerre sur la vie mathématique en France au vingtième siècle.

How did Pierre Fatou and Gaston Julia create what we call Complex dynamics, in the context of the beginning of the twentieth century and especially of the first World War? The book is based partly on new, unpublished sources.Who were Pierre Fatou, Gaston Julia, Paul Montel? New biographical indications on Fatou are given. How did the injury of Julia during the first World War influence the mathematical life in France?
