The unreal life of Oscar Zariski by Carol Parikh ( Book )
21 editions published between 1990 and 2009 in English and held by 838 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Oscar Zariski's work in mathematics permanently altered the foundations of algebraic geometry. The powerful tools he forged from the ideas of modern algebra allowed him to penetrate classical problems with an unaccustomed depth, and brought new rigor to the intuitive proofs of the Italian School. The students he trained at Hopkins, and later at Harvard, are among the foremost mathematicians of our time. While what he called his 'real life' is recorded in almost a hundred books and papers, this story of his 'unreal life' is based upon Parikh's interviews with his family, colleagues, and students, and on his own memories from a series of tape-recorded interviews made a few years before his death in 1986. First published in 1991, "The Unreal Life of Oscar Zariski" was highly successful and widely praised, but has been out of print for many years. Springer is proud to make this book available again, introducing Oscar Zariski to a new generation of mathematicians
