It is with great emotion that we present here this volume dedicated to the memory of Bernard Jouvet, Docteur es Sciences, Directeur des Recher- ches at the Centre National pour la Recherche Scientifique. The life and the career as a physicist of Professor Jouvet are evoked in the following pages by Professor F. Cerulus, a friend of long standing of Professor Jouvet. The contributions have been written by physicists who were friends, collaborators or former students of Professor Jouvet. I express here my gratitude for their contributions. I wish also to thank Mrs. France Jouvet for her kind help in the realiza- tion of this book. Without her support this would have been impossible. I am also especially indebted to Professor M. Flato for his constant encouragement and kind cooperation, and to F. Langouche and D. Roekaerts for their generous help in the preparation of this volume. E.
