En pleine Révolution Culturelle, le pouvoir chinois construit une base militaire secrète destinée à abriter un programme de recherche de potentielles civilisations extra-terrestres. Ye Wenjie, une jeune astrophysicienne en cours de “rééducation” parvient à envoyer dans l’espace lointain un message contenant des informations sur la civilisation humaine. Ce signal est intercepté par les Trisolariens, qui s’apprêtent à abandonner leur planète-mère, située à quatre années-lumière de la Terre et menacée d’un effondrement gravitationnel provoqué par les mouvements chaotiques des trois soleils de son système. Ye Wenjie reçoit près de huit ans plus tard la réponse des Trisolariens. Choquée par les horreurs dont elle a été témoin durant la Révolution culturelle et ayant perdu toute foi dans l’homme, elle fournit secrètement aux Trisolariens les coordonnées du système solaire, dans l’espoir que ceux-ci viennent conquérir la Terre et réformer l’humanité. Dans quatre siècles, ils seront là... Premier volume d'une trilogie culte, récompensé par le Hugo du meilleur roman en 2015, Le Problème à trois corps signale l’arrivée d’un auteur majeur sur la scène de la hard SF.

This near-future trilogy is the first chance for English-speaking readers to experience this multiple-award-winning phenomenon from Cixin Liu, China's most beloved science fiction author. In The Dark Forest, Earth is reeling from the revelation of a coming alien invasion-in just four centuries' time. The aliens' human collaborators may have been defeated, but the presence of the sophons, the subatomic particles that allow Trisolaris instant access to all human information, means that Earth's defense plans are totally exposed to the enemy. Only the human mind remains a secret. This is the motivation for the Wallfacer Project, a daring plan that grants four men enormous resources to design secret strategies, hidden through deceit and misdirection from Earth and Trisolaris alike. Three of the Wallfacers are influential statesmen and scientists, but the fourth is a total unknown. Luo Ji, an unambitious Chinese astronomer and sociologist, is baffled by his new status. All he knows is that he's the one Wallfacer that Trisolaris wants dead.

Here is an accurate and readable translation of a seminal article by Henri Poincaré that is a classic in the study of dynamical systems popularly called chaos theory. In an effort to understand the stability of orbits in the solar system, Poincaré applied a Hamiltonian formulation to the equations of planetary motion and studied these differential equations in the limited case of three bodies to arrive at properties of the equations’ solutions, such as orbital resonances and horseshoe orbits. Poincaré wrote for professional mathematicians and astronomers interested in celestial mechanics and differential equations. Contemporary historians of math or science and researchers in dynamical systems and planetary motion with an interest in the origin or history of their field will find his work fascinating.
