Pierre Schapira is a french mathematician who developed algebraic analysis as a member of Sato’s school, with main collaborator Masaki Kashiwara. Together, they developed microlocalization of sheaves and ind-sheaves, expanding Sato’s groundbreaking ideas to a complete categorical toolbox to do analysis in a purely (ind)-sheaf theoretical setting.
The theory of microlocalization of (ind)-sheaves was developed in the following works:
The two pedagogical books written with Kashiwara:
Masaki Kashiwara, Pierre Schapira, Sheaves on manifolds, Springer (this book describes, among other topics, the author’s theory of microlocalization of sheaves)
Masaki Kashiwara, Pierre Schapira, Categories and sheaves, Grundlehren der Mathematischen Wissenschaften 332, Springer (2006)
