Etienne Klein

Il était sept fois la révolution : Albert Einstein et les autres


Certaines révolutions sont lentes et ne font pas couler de sang. Entre 1925 et 1935, la physique connaît un tel bouleversement : les atomes, petits grains de matière découverts quelques années plus tôt, n'obéissent plus aux lois de la physique classique. Il faut en inventer de nouvelles. C'est ce que firent, avec d'autres, les sept physiciens hors du commun auxquels Étienne Klein rend ici hommage : George Gamow, Albert Einstein, Paul Dirac, Ettore Majorana, Wolfgang Pauli, Paul Ehrenfest et Erwin Schrödinger. Formant l'avant-garde de la science européenne du début du XXe siècle, ces hommes, qui ont en commun d'avoir été, chacun à sa façon, des génies, sont parvenus, par des travaux d'une audace extraordinaire, à comprendre les lois étranges qui régissent le comportement de la matière. À travers eux se dessine l'histoire d'une époque et d'un bouillonnement intellectuel intense, qui demeure unique dans l'histoire de la physique.
