Devoirs et mes conférences de Poincaré [manuscript].
- Paris, 1850, approximately 1881-1883.
4 booklets and 90 leaves : paper, illustrated.
- Lecture notes.
Manuscripts, French -- 19th century.
- Mathematical notes written in Paris, between 1881, when Poincaré began teaching at the Université de Paris (Sorbonne), and 1883, when Victor Puiseux, also on the faculty there, died. The notes seem to be written by both Etienne Pomey and his brother Jean-Baptiste Pomey, both of whom went on to publish mathematical works. The student notes and assignments (Folders 1-13) and 4 notebooks titled Conférences d'analyse I-IV (Folders 14-17) are on varied types and sizes of paper and are annotated both by Henri Poincaré (in purple ink) and Victor Puiseux (in pencil). Also in the collection are 2 letters written by botanist Adolphe Brongniart (one to a recipient in Paris with the last name Guettel) and a letter written by his son Edouard Brongniart, all concerning the health of Madame Brongniart and dated between 10 February and 23 June 1850, apparently unrelated to the mathematical material (Folder 18).
