What's up in

Explore our surprisingly simple, absurdly ambitious and necessarily incomplete guide to the boundless mathematical universe.

It’s an educated guess, not a proof. But a good conjecture will guide math forward, pointing the way into the mathematical unknown.

The 30-year-old math sensation Peter Scholze is now one of the youngest Fields medalists for “the revolution that he launched in arithmetic geometry.”

Peter Scholze is a favorite to win one of the highest honors in mathematics for his contributions in number theory and geometry.

At 28, Peter Scholze is uncovering deep connections between number theory and geometry.
