Vladimir Voevodsky

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...
In math as in life, Vladimir Voevodsky played by his own rules. Voevodsky, a Russian-born mathematical prodigy, produced a string of daring insights in the 1990s that revolutionized one of the central fields of mathematics and established him at the pinnacle of his...
Not going to class isn't typically something good to boast about. But perhaps the late Vladimir Voevodsky is the exception to the rule. Voevodsky is credited with founding new fields of mathematics, such as motivic homotopy theory, and a computer tool to help...
Vladimir Voevodsky , a mathematician who grew up in Russia before coming to the United States, where his work was recognized with the Fields Medal, often regarded as the equivalent of the Nobel Prize for mathematics, died Sept. 30 in Princeton, N.J. He was...
Vladimir Voevodsky, a once-gifted but restless student who flunked out of college out of boredom before emerging as one of the most brilliant and revolutionary mathematicians of his generation, died on Sept. 30 at his home in Princeton, N.J. He was 51. To learn more,...
Vladimir Voevodsky, a truly extraordinary and original mathematician who made remarkable advances in algebraic geometry, and whose most recent work concerned rewriting the foundations of mathematics to make them suitable for computer proof verification, died at age 51 on September 30 in Princeton, New Jersey. Voevodsky was Professor in the School of Mathematics at the Institute for Advanced Study, a position he held since 2002.
The Institute for Advanced Study is deeply saddened by the passing of Vladimir Voevodsky , Professor in the School of Mathematics. Voevodsky, a truly extraordinary and original mathematician, made many contributions to the field of mathematics, earning him numerous honors and awards, including the...
Frequent Director's Visitor Siobhan Roberts considers errors in mathematics with Professor Vladimir Voevodsky, discussing how his experience confirming a mistake within his own influential proof led him to employ a “proof assistant”—a computer program that would prevent him from wandering too far down...
Julie Rehmeyer of 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...
