The power of mathematics, why they still are unavoidable

The magazine La Recherche recently published a special issue (Les Dossiers de La Recherche n°37 trimestriel novembre 2009). An improved  version of a previous paper appeared in this volume. It is entitled  “Comment on est venu à bout de la conjecture de Poincaré” and contains a wide-audience description of Perelman’s works on Hamilton’s Ricci flow leading to  the proof of Poincaré’s Conjecture. A previous version also published in La Recherche is available here.
