  Alain Connes, honorary doctor 2000 - The University of Oslo
For several years, Alain Connes has been one of the world-leading mathematicians.
Professor Connes worked almost exclusively, during the years 1971-1982, on operator algebras - a branch of functional analysis which arose from the study of quantum mechanics and group representations in the 1930’s.
At about the same time, Connes started to study differential geometry, and for the next 5 years his research was divided between geometry and operator algebras.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Alain Connes, widely considered to be one of the three most influential living mathematicians, has accepted a position of distinguished professor at Vanderbilt, enabling the University to become a base for training new mathematicians to fill the ranks left vacant by a retiring generation of scholars.
Under the arrangement, Connes, who is a professor of mathematics at the College de France and holds the Motchane Chair at l'Institut des Hautes Études Scientifiques in France, will spend several weeks each spring in Nashville to collaborate with members of the Vanderbilt math department and participate in an annual workshop for young mathematicians.
In 1982, Connes received the Fields Medal, the highest award given by the international mathematics community, and in 2001 he was awarded the $500,000 Crafoord Prize by the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences.

They attempt to provide an introduction to Alain Connes' non-commutative geometry-analysis,\footnote{ In a modern sight geometry and analysis have merged into one discipline: the study of manifolds and the operators on their vector bundles.
Concerning the microworld Connes proposes an astounding interpretation of the full standard model in terms of a Poincar\'e-dual pair of (mildly) non-commutative spaces, compounds of usual space-time and the electroweak, resp.
I regret not to have had the leisure of including an account of Connes' non-commited study of the possible choice of coupling constants: for this I refer to [3], [3a], [4], where results are stated without details of calculations.

Connes also has many interesting comments about non-commutative geometry and about his own career, including the fact that he went off in the direction he did because he was put off by the arrogance of the algebraic geometers at the IHES.
When Connes asked him about this, the physicist told him that the difference was that in the meantime he had heard that Witten had been seen reading Connes’s book in the library at Princeton.
Connes said “… the most successful systems so far were these big institutes in the Soviet Union, like the Landau institute, the Steklov institute, etc. Money did not play any role there, the job was just to talk about science.

Hopefully lots of you know that Connes is the wizard of operator theory who turned to inventing a new branch of geometry, "noncommutative geometry".
Connes and Lott also studied the strong force, but now Connes has introduced gravity into his model.
His spacetime is the noncommutative algebra consisting of smooth functions on good old 4-dimensional Minkowski spacetime, taking values in the algebra A given by the direct sum A = C + H + M_3(C) where C is the complex numbers, H is the quaternions, and M_3(C) is the 3x3 complex matrices.

Recent work of Connes and Chamseddine suggests that they can be taken as natural variables for an invariant description of the dynamics of gravity.
Alain Connes' exciting and ambitious attempt to unravel a microscopic noncommutative structure of spacetime \cite{alainb,lot,daniel3,landi} has generated, among several others, also the idea that the Dirac operator $D$ encodes the full information about the spacetime geometry in a way usable for describing gravitational dynamics.
Following Connes \cite{alain}, it is tempting to consider the physical hypothesis that isospectral Ricci flat 4-geometries, are physical indistinguishable (``Spectral hypothesis'').

Most of Connes’ examples are variants of the same basic idea: when a group acts nicely on a space, you can define a new space by collapsing each orbit of the group action to a single point (this construction is known as the quotient space of the action).
For group actions that have badly behaved quotients, Connes introduced a noncommutative ring that functions as the analogue of the quotient space.

The main trick invented by Connes was to come up with a substitute for the "differential forms" on a space.
Connes, being extremely inventive and ambitious, has applied noncommutative differential geometry to many areas: index theory, K-theory, foliations, Penrose tilings, fractals, the quantum Hall effect, and even elementary particle physics.
Perhaps the most intriguing result is that if one develops the Yang-Mills equations with using the techniques of noncommutative geometry, but with a very simple "commutative" model of spacetime, namely a two-sheeted cover of ordinary spacetime, the Higgs boson falls out rather magically on its own.

One of the greatest challenges that theoretical physics faces at the end of the century is to blend together the two revolutions of the beginning of the century, namely general relativity and quantum mechanics.
Its development, mainly due to Alain Connes, is providing an increasing number of applications and deeper insights for instance in Foliations, K-Theory, Index Theory, Number Theory but also in Quantum Physics of elementary particles.
