Poincaré-Koebe's theorem of uniformization enables to build a geometrical classification of surfaces. In 1984, Beauville and Bomogolov generalized this classification by considering a subset of varieties of greater dimensions: compact Kähler manifolds with trivial canonical bundle. In a recent work, F. Loray, J.V. Pereira and F. Touzet give a foliated version of this generalisation. Their paper describes the structure of singular codimension one foliations with numerically trivial canonical bundle on complex projective manifolds.

A Professor at the School of Mathematics at the Institute for Advanced Studies (IAS) in Princeton, New Jersey, since 2012, Vladimir Voevodsky worked on the homotopy theory of schemes, algebraic K-theory, and interrelations between algebraic geometry, and algebraic topology.
He was awarded the 2002 Fields Medal “especially for his work on motivic cohomology and homotopy theory for algebraic varieties and his proof of the Milnor conjecture.”
