You can reach me at I answer every message I get. Unfortunately, Gmail sometimes puts true messages in the spam folder and they are lost. If you do not get an answer within a reasonnable time, please try again.

I have new scientific interests, and I no longer referee papers pertaining to the fields I previously studied. For the same reason, I cannot write recommandation letters.

Become RICH with my prizes

I am writing an introduction to the very basics of Quantum Field Theory specially designed for mathematicians who know no physics and only undergraduate mathematics. (You may notice a self-description here.) It is supposed to be very easy reading. A first version of the entire project is nearly complete. The early chapters (and more) are ready, explaining what is a free quantum field. A large part of these chapters have already been read by persons with no background in the field, so that it is now PROVED that they are actually readeable. A number of appendices explaining from the ground up some relevant mathematics are also ready. I need MORE VOLUNTEERS. Please participate to this project. If you provide valuable feedback, you earn access to free tutoring and a 24/7 help line! If you can help me, or know somebody who could, please let me know. Here is the table of contents of version 0.9

If you are desperate to get my books and your library can't afford them, try to type the words "library genesis" in a search engine. However much I desagree with piracy, this site can be very useful, at least until our libraries carry electronic versions of older books.

The Ledoux-Talagrand book has been reprinted in the affordable series Classics in Mathematics. Still Springer-Verlag has most generously agreed that I distribute the file below. This is the file of a preliminary version, and the references are missing. Use it at your own risk: Probability in Banach Spaces.

It is AGAINST MY WILL that Springer keeps selling my 2005 book "The Generic Chaining". This serves NO scientific purpose, since the material of this book is reworked with a lot more details in my 2014 book "Upper and Lower Bounds for Stochastic Processes". Please let this be known, and don't ever open this obsolete book.

I miss them so much
