His diverse work includes a classification theorem in the theory of commutative formal group, early study of monoidal transformations and exposition on motives in 1960-s, a fundamental starting work in quantum information theory, proposals on quantum logics, an approach to quantum groups, ADHM construction in soliton theory, work with Maxim Kontsevich on Gromov-Witten invariants, work on Frobenius manifolds (and introduced more general “F-manifolds” with Claus Hertling). He published a number of influential monographs including on noncommutative geometry, quantum groups, complex geometry and gauge theories, introduction to schemes, Frobenius manifolds, mathematical logics…
