CORRESPONDENCE
November 1, 1957
From Alexander Grothendieck ::

My dear Serre,
I have nothing very interesting to tell you. I have been trying to learn
Neron-style height theory [...]

For the moment, what is needed is to invent a process for deforming a cycle
whose dimension is not too large, in order to push it to infinity. Perhaps you
would like to think about this yourself? I have only just started on it today,
and am writing to you because I have no ideas.

Finally, I have another kind of question. You are moving out of your
apartment; do you think it might be possible for me to inherit it? As the
rent is not very high, if I remember rightly, I would then be able to buy some
furniture (on credit). I am interested in it for my mother, who isn't very happy
in Bois-Colombes, and is terribly isolated.

Regards,
A.Grothendieck

CORRESPONDENCE
November 8, 1964
From Jean-Pierre Serre ::

Dear Grothendieck,
It is diffcult to reply to your infinite letters: they would require infinite
answers, which presupposes I have understood what you are talking about. As
this is not the case, I will restrict myself to answering the trivial questions.

Yours,
J-P. Serre
