What a loss for Mathematics. Let's hope his vision of new Mathematics becomes reality one day

>its fucking real
what did he die of?
how come? is this hott gang?
AIDS from all the unprotected homotopic sex he was having.
Drugs or suicide, that is the question.
he has been known for having taken a years long hiatus from math before - he was a bit mad and also got into a severe fight with the CS people who "took homotopy type theory" away from him (and wrote the book without him).
He had then also written this angsty Wikipedia page, rebranding his ideas, pic related
Always a bit 2edge4me
This birthday hat is fucking retarded
it's coming back every year, chill bra
Damn if CS people stole my theory I would be really pissed off. At least I now have a good reason to hate CS people.
>This birthday hat is fucking retarded
Dude, it's fucking classic. Shitting on the hat is like shitting on Christmas. Just go with it. Are you a fucking newfag?
Nice hat dude
>he was a bit mad and also got into a severe fight with the CS people who "took homotopy type theory" away from him (and wrote the book without him).
why would Counter-Strike players steal a man's methematical theories?
It is very nice placed. I am sure he died so that this thread was made.
Does 5 years count as being a newfag?
Because that's how long I've hated the hat.
Short bus stuff.
>still doesn't know how to edit the html of the page on google chrome to remove it if he hates it so much.
Kek literally neck yourself.
not my job to clean up a shitstain
that fucking hat

It's a sad fucking day when I get breaking news about the death of a scientists first from Veeky Forums rather than from my nature subscription. At least based quanta is trying
I imagine they're writing a nice article right about now
That's from 2015 though
Yeah, I know, they did the same thing for Maryum when she died, first they put the article written about her work prior on the front page to call attention to their work, and while doing that they also write an article about said person postmortem. I imagine they are doing the same for Vlad so we'll be getting an article about him soon.
Can I get a rundown of what this Voevodsky's work was?
then quit your bitching
As can be seen from the OP post his early works were mainly in Abstract Algebra, Algebraic Topology and Geometry. However,
at some point of time he took a break from Mathematics and realized that the mathematics we are doing is either highly abstract and elegant or more concrete and complex. He believed that the 'new Mathematics' is in the land of both abstract and complex and it's very challenging for a human to perform such work and it is even harder for others to understand it ( recall Mochizuki's work if you don't believe Voevodky's thoughts). For this reason, Vladimir wanted to create something that could eliminate the possibility of wrong proof verification and make it easier for people to do the envisioned 'new Mathematics'. The Univalent Foundations were born but there is still a lot of work to do. The main problem is that Voevodsky's model is non-constructive (damn axiom of choice).
To sum up, Voevodsky was an exceptional Mathematician, he was very creative and I would personally say that one could feel Grothendieck's spirit in his works.
is nlab talking about this?
thanks for using my pic
Rest in peace.
