I’m reading with great interest biographic notes and work of Peter Scholze who at the age of 30 is one of the youngest Fields Medal Award Laureates. He has already won most of the top awards in Mathematics.

He currently is a Max Planck Institute for Mathematics director and a Hausdorff Chair at the University of Bonn. Super impressive!

Scholze’s key innovation is a class of fractal structures that he calls perfectoid spaces (2011 PhD thesis) which has far-reaching ramifications in the field of Arithmetic Geometry.

To help others learn about his awesome research work, the following links were indexed in the Math Bios (http://www.minerazzi.com/mathbios) miner.

A miner on its own class and focused on perfectoid spaces is more than meritorious, I believe. Don’t you think so?

PS. Here is an introductory note by Jared Weinstein on perfectoid spaces:

Here are some notes about his greatness

And here is a chat on perfectoid spaces:

I decided to go ahead and build the perfectoid spaces miner. It should be ready pretty soon.

PS. The Perfectoid Spaces Miner is now available
