**What did grothendieck discover?**

He developed unifying concepts that could be applied to a variety of avenues of mathematical thought, including number theory, category theory, functional analysis and topology. In 1966, Mr. Grothendieck was awarded the Fields Medal, considered the world’s highest honor in mathematics.

### What did Alexander grothendieck accomplish?

Mathematical concepts and Achievements: Alexander Grothendieck was the focal point in the launching of the modern Theory of Algebraic Geometry; this included commutative algebra, homological algebra, sheaf theory, and category theory.

**Was Alexander grothendieck married?**

Grothendieck was married at least once, to Mireille Dufour. They had three children. He had two other sons with other women. Information about his survivors was not available.

## How did grothendieck learn math?

there were so many open questions that it didn’t matter.” Grothendieck confirms in Récoltes et Semailles that most of what he learned in geometry he learned from Serre, or taught himself, and calls Serre the “detonator” that provided the spark to ignite his explosion of ideas.

**What is the Mathantics guy name?**

We have just the name of the person, Rob Mathantics, and nothing else. The family of the person did not share any updates on social media.

### Why did Alexander grothendieck flee his country?

He continued to fight for the anarchists and was captured and escaped several times, on one occasion losing his left arm. He married a Jewish woman Rachil and they had a son named Dodek. Eventually, in 1921, he escaped to live for a while in Berlin and then in Paris under the name Alexander Tanaroff.

**Who solved Fermat’s Last Theorem?**

theorist Andrew Wiles

Mathematician receives coveted award for solving three-century-old problem in number theory. British number theorist Andrew Wiles has received the 2016 Abel Prize for his solution to Fermat’s last theorem — a problem that stumped some of the world’s greatest minds for three and a half centuries.
