    In the course of my series of adding little blurbs to category:people entries I turned to the entry Maxim Kontsevich, fully expecting it to be as empty of textual information as most of the other entries, only to find myself reminded that this entry actually has a very good bit of information in it.

    I am wondering, though, if one should bring his homological mirror symmetry more to the forefront, together with the fact that via this Kontsevich had effectively been putting \infty-categories at the heart of modern QFT long before this became more widely recognized (and that is an ongoing process, of course).

    Added Maxim Kontsevich’s introductory lecture on Calabi-Yau Motives to the page. (The rest of the breakthrough prize symposium mathematics lectures are much more introductory … which is why I didn’t add them).
