Abstract or Additional Information

After briefly reviewing torsors and non-abelian cohomology groups and discussing classification of torsors on projective and affine lines, I will formulate the Grothendieck-Serre conjecture in its simplest form. I will explain the strategy of the proof. The details of the proof will be given in the next talks.
