His key contributions include topological tensor products of topological vector spacesthe theory of nuclear spaces as foundational for Schwartz distributionsand the application of L p spaces in studying linear maps between topological vector spaces. Closely linked to these cohomology theories, he originated topos theory as a generalisation of topology relevant also in categorical logic.

Grothendieck approached algebraic geometry by clarifying the foundations of the field, and by developing gothendieck tools intended to prove a number of notable conjectures. Shortly afterwards his father was interned in Le Vernet.

Here the term yoga denotes a kind of “meta-theory” that can be used heuristically; Michel Raynaud writes the other terms “Ariadne’s thread” and “philosophy” as effective equivalents. His father, Alexander “Sascha” Schapiro also known as Frothendieck Tanaroffhad Hasidic Jewish roots and had been imprisoned in Russia before moving to Germany inwhile his mother, Johanna “Hanka” Grothendieck, came from a Protestant family in Hamburg and worked as a journalist.

His foundational work on algebraic geometry is at a higher level of abstraction than all prior versions. Algebraic geometry has traditionally meant the understanding of geometric objects, such as algebraic curves and surfaces, through the study of the algebraic equations for those objects.

Alexandre Grothendieck

Schemes have become the basic objects of study for practitioners of modern algebraic geometry. Grothendieck laid a new foundation for algebraic geometry by making intrinsic spaces “spectra” and associated rings the primary objects of study.

Table of contents A. His theory of schemes has become established as the best universal foundation for this field, because of its expressiveness as well as technical depth. He is also noted for his mastery of abstract approaches to mathematics and his perfectionism in matters of formulation and presentation.


Symmetric Spaces over a Finite Field Z. Inaged ten, he moved to France as a refugee. He thus became a stateless person for at least the majority of his working life, traveling on a Nansen passport. As a framework for his coherent duality theory he also introduced derived categorieswhich were further developed by Verdier.

Bulletin of the American Mathematical Society 4. Retrieved from ” https: In this approach, the properties of a geometric object are related to the properties of an associated ring. Local villagers helped sustain him with a more varied diet after he tried to live on a staple of dandelion soup. Over 20, pages of Grothendieck’s mathematical and other writings, held at the University of Montpellier, remain unpublished.

The theme that had been most extensively developed was schemes, which were the framework ” par excellence ” for eight of the other themes all but 1, 5, and Grothendieck took them to a higher level of abstraction and turned them into a key organising principle of his theory.

In Grothendieck declined the Crafoord Prize with an open letter to the media. After three years of increasingly independent studies there, he went to continue his studies in Paris in Winfried Scharlau, ‘Wer ist Alexander Grothendieck? Anarchie” [Who is Alexander Grothendieck?
