Grothendieck’s Musings on Kimchi

Organized by Mike Pierce

This is an English translation of Alexander Grothendieck’s essay on kimchi. I have very little to do with the words; I’ve simply type­set and organ­ized/​crowd­sourced the trans­lation via GitHub. The trans­lation is based off this scan of the orig­inal essay. The type­set­ting of this page is adapted from Tufte CSS.

You can find a French trans­cription here, but it might contain errors. If you’d like to contribute to this project (make suggest­ions for this English trans­lation, make correct­ions to the French trans­cription, create a new trans­lation, improve this website, etc) see con­trib­ and please add your voice to the discussions page.
