Grand theoricien de la physique comparable a Einstein dont il a rejoint la demarche, il fut un decouvreur fecond, auteur, notamment, d'un procede de detection des sous-marins. Il s'est egalement battu politiquement, au mepris de sa carriere scientifique, dans les ranges des pacifistes et des adversaires du fascisme. L'ouvrage de Bernadette Bensaude-Vincent revele, dans sa chaleureuse diversite, un personnage reste mal connu, malgre la legende qui l'entourait de son vivant.
