The main themes of the mathematical research of Yuri Manin can be summarized as follows: Geometry, especially Algebraic Geometry, and geometric thinking, as the unifying and creative principle in Number Theory, Physics and Computer Science.


Research Area C The foundations of quantum cohomology of algebraic varieties have been developed by Kontsevich, Manin, Pandharipande, and many others some 15 years ago. Variants and the finer structure are currently investigated. In [1], weighted stable curves are generalized to weighted stable maps and wallcrossing phromena are studied in the space of stability conditions. In [2], signal analysis and noncommutative geometry are brought together.  Former Research Area L In joint work with Marcolli errorcorrecting codes have been related to the asymptotic bound to phase diagrams of quantum statistical mechanical systems. In a series of papers it is argued that infinities in classical computation theory can be addressed in the same way as Feynman divergences, and that meaningful versions of renormalization in this context can be devised.
