Citações André Weil

„Every mathematician worthy of the name has experienced the state of lucid exaltation in which one thought succeeds another as if miraculously.“

—  André Weil
Context: Every mathematician worthy of the name has experienced the state of lucid exaltation in which one thought succeeds another as if miraculously. This feeling may last for hours at a time, even for days. Once you have experienced it, you are eager to repeat it but unable to do it at will, unless perhaps by dogged work. The Apprenticeship of a Mathematician (1992)

„An important point is that the p-adic field, or respectively the real or complex field, corresponding to a prime ideal, plays exactly the role, in arithmetic, that the field of power series in the neighborhood of a point plays in the theory of functions: that is why one calls it a local field.“
