Alainpers has for ever been obsessed with how to represent the passage of time…time as it illuminates our thoughts. At the age of 17, he visits an exhibition of art “lumino-cinetic” (combining light and movement) which fascinates him and leads him to his future passion. After a stint in both the aeronautical and industrial fields, he decides to follow his own creative urge and starts producing works of art as well as monumental paintings and sculptures. He always works with light, light as keeper of our days and dreams, where seconds drip and flow into minutes and hours. In all of Alainper’s work there is a fusion between the passage of time and light as they merge into one. To him, light is imbued with meaning and purpose. Rays of the day, rays of our life, that show us the way: daybreak, high noon, twilight, moments that give our life its rhythm. A point of light is like a dart that soars and collapses, dies, and is reborn … Life: a point of light that carries us towards an instant of eternity.

The Eyrolles Bookstore and Eyrolles.com are services of the Eyrolles S.A. Group. The Eyrolles.com online bookstore site opened in July 1999. The Eyrolles Group has been present on the Internet since 1997, with web sites dedicated to its activities as a publisher and distributor, and quite early on set up the possibility of ordering books from its collection through these sites. In 1999, the group decided to open a real merchant site, relying on the expertise of its specialized Parisian bookstore and its distance selling structure (EyrollesPro, formerly Dlivres). The Eyrolles.com site was launched in July of the same year and opened with a first department: Computer Science. In 2000, the Enterprise-Management and Construction departments were added to the site and partnerships were set up with a number of sites positioned in these sectors. Since then, many departments have been added, following both the evolution of the bookseller activity and the new French editorial themes.
Tangente magazine, emblem of mathematical culture and its links with other fields, celebrates its 35th anniversary in 2022.
Its five main sections are as many ways to popularize mathematics in an original way.
- Stories: mathematical concepts were not created in a day and have sometimes taken centuries to establish. Mathematics "tells its own story".
- Bridges: Tangente highlights the bridges that link arts and mathematics. Beyond the aesthetics of a result or the beauty of a demonstration, we can discover the hidden mathematics of certain artists, their common birth with music, the link with literature... - Actions: mathematics brings us into the world of today: economy, politics... They are also omnipresent in daily life. - Games and problems: a close link exists between mathematics and games. Doing mathematics is playing, searching, finding, challenging oneself... - Knowledge : one finds, of course, articles in Tangente that only talk about mathematics. They obey constraints that make their approach attractive, from the form to the structure, from the style to the layout and the illustrations.
