Cédric Villani as a “Living Theorem”

by

2010 Fields Medal laureate Cédric Villani is a world-renowned French mathematician enjoying a media-star status in his country (where scientific culture and achievements are taken seriously).
His book Théorème Vivant has been published last August by Grasset, with a first print-run of 30,000 and good initial sales, an impressive array of Higher Mathematics formulas and symbols notwithstanding.
Incredibly enough, and going against an established Italian tradition of wariness towards scientific books, a major publisher like Rizzoli is going to publish the book in Italy early in 2013.
This fact alone speaks volumes about Villani’s prestige and kudos.
And before I forget: he’s going to be LUCCA COMICS AND SCIENCE‘s guest of honor in 2013 (as mathematician Roberto Natalini and yours truly proudly announced last November).
Such are the interest and sense of waiting stirred by this truly unique figure of modern scientist and popularizer, that prominent Italian science blogger Popinga simply couldn’t wait and reviewed the French version of the book.
Strictly speaking, Théorème Vivant is a popular science book but, at the same time, it serves well as a personal journal, a memoir and a meditation about mathematical research’s dynamics and inner workings. Uncompromisingly, when it comes to scientific rigor.
Which only says a lot about Popinga’s merits: more than simply accessible, his post makes Villani’s efforts and achievements engaging. And the occasional readers find themselves asking for more about mathematics and Landau damping (not joking)…
Deeply gratified by their new, wonderful discovery: not only Great Science can be entertaining; when it’s really great it reaches out to people’s lives.

    all important infos. I’d like to peer more posts like this .

    You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be actually something that I think I would never
    understand. It seems too complex and extremely broad for
    me. I’m looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!

  5. Calling Systems Says:

    I believe everything published was actually very reasonable.

    However, think on this, suppose you added a little content?

    I am not saying your content isn’t solid., but suppose you added something that makes people desire more? I mean Cédric Villani as a Living Theorem Andrea Plazzi is kinda boring. You should peek at Yahoo’s home page
    and watch how they create news headlines to get viewers interested.
    You might add a related video or a pic or two to grab readers interested
    about everything’ve written. In my opinion, it would make your posts a little livelier.

    Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles?

    I mean, what you say is important and everything.
    However think of if you added some great pictures or videos to
    give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and video clips,
    this blog could undeniably be one of the most beneficial in its niche.

    Fantastic blog!

    Beim ruhigen Lesen von dem Artikel “%BLOGTITLE”, dann merke ich, dass Einiges an Zeit und Arbeit reingesteckt wurde.

    This can be done across multiple Twitter accounts, although
    I personally choose to setup each Twitter account with different keywords to make sure that I don’t have too many duplicates if I am broadcasting the same message across several accounts. Is it better to post something to our Face – Linked – Ning – Space pages, because that post provides personal context, starts conversation that the rest of our friends can follow along and helps you steadily build an audience over time; to blog amid a topic-based community, where a your post may “go viral” on the blogosphere and get thousands of “one time” hits and trackbacks; or is it worth the effort to use blogging and social networks in combination by drawing the attention of your friends and followers to your blog via a post and URL from your social network pages.
