I would like to know if is there any translation of the early functional analysis works by Grothendieck. More precisely, I am searching for translations of La theorie de Fredholm and Produits Tensoriels topologiques. Any reference in English would be appreciated!

Thanks in advance

    $\begingroup$ I don't think that any translation exists, but as the exposition of "La théorie de Fredhom" is 60 years old, I think that there are plenty of better references. For the other document, there are more than one with this name, but if you refer to his PhD thesis, I think that no translation will ever come, as it took six month to Laurent Schwartz just to read it! $\endgroup$ – Paul-Benjamin Nov 2 '16 at 10:48
  • $\begingroup$ The Soviets used to translate (into Russian) the best math papers. $\endgroup$ – Liviu Nicolaescu Nov 2 '16 at 11:06
  • $\begingroup$ not yet worth posting as an answer, but I am slowly working my way through translating "Résumé des résultats essentiels dans la théorie des produits tensoriels topologiques et des espaces nucléaires", which seems to be a good summary (without proofs) of a lot of his work in functional analysis. $\endgroup$ – Tim Jan 31 at 0:57
