GALOIS. STORY OF A REVOLUTIONARY MATHEMATICIAN
Paris, May 29, 1832. In the middle of the night, on the eve of a duel, Évariste Galois, a little older than twenty, handles for the last time a manuscript full of equations and theorems he had written four years earlier. That manuscript marks the beginning of an extraordinary scientific adventure that radically changed the way we see the world nowadays, providing us with the ideal language to unveil the fundamental laws of the universe. Genius and rebel, Galois is the romantic hero by definition. The tragic history of his life has a fascination that never seems to end.
