Arrows and Exact Sequences

  • Published 2007


The above is a plaisanterie by Henri Cartan (1952 in an Oberwolfach meeting). It was not meant seriously; most mathematicians agree that number theory is the queen of mathematics. But it shows that, at that time, many people working in topology, algebra and related fields were greatly impressed by the impact and power of that simple quite new idea; it was able to facilitate arguments and intuition at the same time.
