CV: Patricia Radelet de Grave is a physicist, she teaches history of mathematics and physics to mathematicians, physicists, engineers, architects and computer scientists at the catholic university of Louvain la Neuve. She is also the general editor of the Bernoulli Edition. Her main interests are the relations between mathematics and physics that she studied for example through the interactions between the concept of vector and that of force or between the mathematical concept of field and that of electromagnetic field. Studying forces, she was led to works on stability of vaults. She then met Edoardo Benvenuto with whom she initiated the researches Between mechanics and architecture.
