The first in-depth and comprehensive look at his many accomplishments,Henri Poincare explores all the fields that Poincare touched, the debates sparked by his original investigations, and how his discoveries still contribute to society today.

His work in topology began the modern study of the subject, recently highlighted by the successful resolution of the famous Poincare conjecture.
