520$a"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. ’I have no time! I do not have time!’ he frantically wrote in the margins. Apart from the solution to a famous algebraic problem that has obsessed the minds of great mathematicians for centuries, that manuscript marks the beginning of an extraordinary scientific adventure that radically changed the way we see the world nowadays. Galois has made us aware of the power of symmetry and mathematical beauty, providing us with the ideal language to unveil the fundamental laws of the universe, from the microscopic world of elementary particles studied at CERN in Geneva, to the extraordinary vastness of intergalactic spaces. Genius, rebellious, revolutionary, bitter due to the lack of official recognition, intolerant of injustices, tormented by his father’s suicide, Galois is a romantic heroic character, a figure who seems to come out of the pages of a Victor Hugo or Stendhal’s novel. This tragic history of his life has a fascination that never seems to end"--DVD container.
