An American physicist who has made significant contributions in quantum physics, theoretical physics, philosophy and neuropsychology. He participated in the Manhattan project and conducted filmed interviews with the Indian philosopher Krishnamurti. He is at the origin of a holographic and unified vision of the universe. His ideas are now coming back to the forefront after having been dismissed for several decades.
French mathematician, who built his notoriety as a topologist, exploring aspects of what might be called the theory of singularities ; he became world famous among the wider academic community and the cultivated general public for an aspect of his latest researches, his work as founder of the disaster theory (later developed by Erik Christopher Zeeman).
