Excerpts from the Grothendieck-Serre Correspondence | Matt Baker’s Math Blog

The letters also reflect the mathematical and political atmosphere of this period. I have the impression, you bastard, that and in your Chap. Physical Description x, x,p. This entry was posted in History of mathematics and tagged GrothendieckSerre. This single location in New South Wales: This extraordinary volume contains a large part of the mathematical correspondence between A. I persist grothendieck-serrr in keeping them, for several reasons, of which the first is practical: Allen Divall marked it as to-read Dec 18, As Chevalley says, one feels frustrated when faced with a proof like that one.

During this period, algebraic geometry went through a remarkable transformation, and Corrspondence and Serre were among central figures in this process.

Nor do I have the impression of having understood his theorem at all; it does nothing more than exhibit, via brute formulas, a certain isomorphism of analytic groups; one could conceive that other equally explicit formulas might give another one which would be no worse than his until proof to the contrary!

Correspondeence original French text of 84 letters is supplemented here by the English translation, with French text printed on the left-hand pages and the corresponding English text printed on the right-hand pages.

I do not see why you should reproach them with this. Sam Lichtenstein rated it it was amazing Oct 10, The reader can follow the creation of some of the most important notions of modern mathematics, like sheaf cohomology, schernes, Riemann-Roch type theorems, algebraic fundamental group, motives.

The University of Melbourne Library. But it has to be admitted that certain results in the book the most important ones appear to be accessible only by his methods by which I mean the use of generic points, generic divisors, etc.

I must admit that I have absolutely not understood why his results might suggest the existence of such a definition, and I remain skeptical.

Ordering on the AMS Bookstore is limited to individuals for personal use only. I know quite a few mathematical geniuses, but Grothendieck was a singularity.
