Books written by Alexander Grothendieck.
Built on work of Weil and Zariski and effected fundamental advances in algebraic geometry. He introduced the idea of K-theory (the Grothendieck groups and rings). Revolutionized homological algebra in his celebrated ‘Tôhoku paper’.
Grothendieck-Serre Correspondence (English and French Edition)
This extraordinary volume contains a large part of the mathematical correspondence between A. Grothendieck and J-P. Serre. It forms a vivid introduction to the development of algebraic geometry during the years 1955-1965. During this period, algebraic geometry went through a remarkable transformation
