Vladimir Voevodsky revolutionized algebraic geometry and is best known for developing the new field of "motivic homotopy theory." His contributions to computer formalization of proofs and the foundations of mathematics also made an immense impact. Algebraic geometry is the study of geometric aspects of systems...

*Scientific American*discusses Professor Vladimir Voevodsky's revolutionary address at the Heidelberg Laureate Forum, writing: Voevodsky told mathematicians that their lives are about to change. Soon enough, they’re going to find themselves doing mathematics at the computer, with the aid of computer...
