In 1958 he moved to the Institute for Advanced Study at Princeton, where he has been professor emeritus since 1976.
Weil's mathematical work centered on number theory, algebraic geometry, and group theory. He proved one of the central results in the theory of algebraic fields. His publications includeFoundations of Algebraic Geometry (1946).
