French mathematician, (1947 - )

Currently Full Professor at IHES ([Bures sur Yvette]?, France).

Specialist of [Von Neumann Algebra]?s, he succeeded in completing the classification of factors of these objects.

The remarkable links between this subject, the tools he and others devised to tackle the problem and other subjects in theoretical physics, particle physics, differential geometry, made him emphasize [Noncommutative Geometry]? (name of his major book to date).

He was awarded the Fields Medal in 1982.
