Article du numéro thématique : Tribute to an exemplary man: Yves Couder

In this article, I briefly discuss the remarkable scientific accomplishments of Yves Couder, their impact in the fluid dynamics community worldwide and his unique personality. It is a personal tribute to a friend and a colleague I have known for the past 35 years.
