Jules Henri Poincaré (UK: /ˈpwæ̃kær/, US: /ˌpwæ̃kɑːˈr/; French:[ɑ̃ʁi pwɛ̃kaʁe] listen); 29 April 1854– 17 July 1912) was a French mathematician, theoretical physicist, engineer, and philosopher of science. He is often described as a polymath, and in mathematics as “The Last Universalist”, since he excelled in all fields of the discipline as it existed during his lifetime.
