More about the Abel Prize winner

A few days ago, I wrote about the winner of this year’s Abel Prize: Mikail Gromov. Since then, a couple of other posts or articles have been published about this. The Chronicle of Higher Education published a small article about it. Today, a very interesting article was posted by someone who would be able to understand Gromov’s achievements better than most of us: Terence Tao. Professor Tao points to earlier articles he has written about Gromov’s theories, and he presents one of Gromov’s results along with a sketch of the original proof. So, if your mathematical skills are somewhat above average, you might be interested in taking a closer look at this 🙂
