  • Résumé

There is no more important concept in the history of mathematics and physics than symmetry. It lies at the heart of relativity theory, quantum mechanics, string theory and much of modern cosmology. This title narrates the history of the emergence of this area of study, from its roots in tenth-century BC Babylon to its role in 21st century physics.
