New survey on Durov’s approach to the field with one element

Posted by Andreas Holmstrom on August 29, 2009

As Thomas points out in a comment, Javier Fresan has posted a survey on the thesis of Durov. Although Durov’s thesis is fairly readable, it is almost 600 pages long, so Fresan’s survey is a very welcome addition to the F1 literature.

For more on the field with one element, see F_un Mathematics. Durov’s work has also been discussed earlier at the n-category cafe and the Secret Blogging Seminar.
