According to Grothendieck, the notion of topos is "the bed or deep river where come to be married geometry and algebra, topology and arithmetic, mathematical logic and category theory, the world of the continuous and that of discontinuous or discrete structures". It is what he had "conceived of most broad to perceive with finesse, by the same language rich of geometric resonances, an "essence" which is common to situations most distant from each other, coming from one region or another of the vast universe of mathematical things". The aim of this book is to present a theory and a number of techniques which allow to give substance to Grothendieck's vision by building on the notion of classifying topos educed by categorical logicians. Mathematical theories (formalized within first-order logic) give rise to geometric objects called sites; the passage from sites to their associated toposes embodies the passage from the logical presentation of theories to their mathematical content, i.e. from syntax to semantics. The essential ambiguity given by the fact that any topos is associated in general with an infinite number of theories or different sites allows to study the relations between different theories, and hence the theories themselves, by using toposes as 'bridges' between these different presentations. The expression or calculation of invariants of toposes in terms of the theories associated with them or their sites of definition generates a great number of results and notions varying according to the different types of presentation, giving rise to a veritable mathematical morphogenesis.

Olivia Caramello is a mathematician working as Assistant Professor at the Università degli Studi dell'Insubria in Como. Her research focuses on investigating the role of Grothendieck toposes as unifying spaces in Mathematics and Logic. Her main contribution has been the development of methods and techniques for transferring information between distinct mathematical theories by using toposes. After obtaining her Ph.D. in Mathematics at the University of Cambridge, she worked as a post-doctoral researcher at the Centro di Ricerca Matematica Ennio De Giorgi of the Scuola Normale Superiore (Pisa), Jesus College, Cambridge, the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics (Bonn), IHES, and as a Marie Curie Fellow at the Université de Paris VII and the Università degli Studi di Milano. She was awarded a L'Oréal-Unesco fellowship for Women in Science in 2014.
