Jacob Lurie’s research has influenced a diverse range of fields from topology to number theory, providing foundational work that has changed the way mathematicians describe and work with derived phenomena. His ideas have redefined the foundations of homotopy theory and topological aspects of algebraic geometry, providing a channel through which algebraic topology influences algebraic geometry. His proof of the Baez-Dolan cobordism hypothesis changed the field drastically, providing a precise dictionary between manifold theory and operadic algebra as well as an applicable language for topological field theory.
