Mathematics is not just about the problems, it is also about the eventual solutions, and the ones who solve them of course! Mykyta Kuzmenko rated it it was ok Apr 29, And the hierarchy goes on If so, is there any written evidence of it, or any account of the development of the mathematical ideas that Grothendieck has expressed in this text?

A clue came shortly afterwards, when I heard from Faltings Grothendieck’s ideas on anabelian geometry. By using our site, you acknowledge that you have read and understand our Cookie PolicyPrivacy Policyand our Terms of Service.

Amin marked it as to-read Aug 18, Return to Book Page. I didn’t come anywhere near to reading the whole thing, but I did spend many hours dipping into various portions while I was a graduate student. At least it made Grothendieck’s “Esquisse d’un programme” more visible and it is clear that the topics there like anabelian geometry or the new foundations for homotopical algebra have been two avenues of research of great interest recently.

Dec 9 ’10 at Even the bits I read of course were hard going. The ideas were already outdated or have been proven wrong. grothendick


On the other hand, the big grotendieck of new objects algebraic spaces, stacks, derived algebro-geometric objects possibly has drained people from working on this questions. Grothendieck, at that point, was dissatisfied with motives.

I still semaillees even know what the standard trothendieck state and thus didn’t understand anything, but I know many people are grothedieck hard to prove these conjectures. Should one of these two suppositions be backed by evidence, I’d appreciate a factual answer.

That way the question becomes purely factual. Again, I have no opinion about the social aspect of such a sentiment assuming the story truebut it is interesting to speculate on the mathematical context.

There were in Orsay and Paris some tremendously powerful people in arithmetic geometry. Now, is the theory developing the way Grothendieck envisioned, that’s another story, but the topic has definitely taken off. Sign up or log in Sign up using Google.

I have no doubt that this is a really hard question to tackle. Serge Lang had put his copy into the mathematics library at Yale, a very cozy place then for hiding among the shelves and getting lost in thoughts or words.

It seems to me that this line of research has not been pursued, mainly for two reasons. I can’t say I understand much of this, ercoltes I really enjoyed it.
