Physics and Chemistry Collections

Alfred Cornu, Recherches sur la réflexion cristalline. Suivi de propositions de chimie données par la faculté, 1867 (Collection thèses de la faculté des sciences de paris)

This collection contains collections of classic nineteenth century works in physics and chemistry, written by great names in the discipline (Joule, Cornu, Foucault, Poincaré...). Among the topics covered, research into light and electricity is particularly well represented.

Specialists in the field have worked with the library to select these documents according to their historical, scientific and methodological interest.

A selection of theses from the Paris Faculty of Science completes this look at physics and chemistry in the 19th century.
