UL http://www.myilibrary.com?id=137713 T1 The Grothendieck festschrift a collection of articles written in honor of the 60th birthday of Alexander Grothendieck A1 Grothendieck, A., Cartier, P., PB Birkhäuser PP Boston YR 2007 SN 9780817645748 0817645748 9780817645762 0817645764 9780817645755 0817645756 AB The many diverse articles presented in these three volumes, collected on the occasion of Alexander Grothendiecks sixtieth birthday and originally published in 1990, were offered as a tribute to one of the worlds greatest living mathematicians. Grothendieck changed the very way we think about many branches of mathematics. Many of his ideas, revolutionary when introduced, now seem so natural as to have been inevitable. Indeed, it is difficult to fully grasp the influence his vast contributions to modern mathematics have subsequently had on new generations of mathematicians. Many of the groundbreaking contributions in these volumes contain material that is now considered foundational to the subject. Topics addressed by these top-notch contributors match the breadth of Grothendiecks own interests, including: functional analysis, algebraic geometry, algebraic topology, number theory, representation theory, K-theory, category theory, and homological algebra.
