... The book is a collection of thirteen articles written by authors who knew Alexandre Grothendieck personally, including former friends, colleagues, students, and collaborators. Their aim is to provide some explanation of what made Grothendieck such a unique mathematician, what the nature of his mathematical thought was, and how his overall mathematical impact shaped their own research work. Accordingly, these articles do not concentrate on specific mathematical contents of Grothendieck’s gigantic work, but instead on the characteristic traits of his tackling of problems: maximum generality, structuralism, fundamental simplicity of new approaches, ingenious generalizations of classical concepts, technical prowess, etc. Each of the articles is devoted to one or another aspect of Grothendieck’s contributions, accompanied with personal impressions, memories, anecdotes, and biographical insertions. ...
