          • 作者簡介
            傑克森現任美國數學學會會訊Notices 的副主編與總主筆,加州大學柏克萊分校數學碩士。她覺得能結合數學和寫作兩個非常不同的領域,面對各種數學課題和數學人物,收穫很大。
          • 譯者簡介
            翁秉仁為臺大數學系副教授,《數學知識網站》負責人,合譯有《數學:確定性的失落》(商務)、《丘成桐談空間的內在形狀》(遠流)。
          • 譯者附記
            譯者感謝李宣北、趙學信提供許多譯文的寶貴意見。
          • 重點摘要
            ◊ 格羅騰迪克是二十世紀的數學大師,為代數幾何開啟全新的面貌,數學影響仍方興未艾。
            ◊ 格羅騰迪克早年多舛,與父母顛沛流離。他的數學背景貧乏,一切出於自學,但天資奇高,在苦學深思與師友攻錯下,終於成為一代宗師。
            ◊ 格羅騰迪克以威伊猜想為目標,從範疇論觀點所鑄造的新工具,連結了離散的數論世界與連續的拓樸世界,啟迪了多位費爾茲獎得主的工作。
