We can answer: where WAS the front a few decades ago.

Indentifying a real breakthroughs needs some time for the evaluation, otherwise it could be not more than fashion.

Would you say today that Paris with Bourbaki was a breakthrough front?

I am not mathematician, but I guess that Moscow was one of the most recent fronts in Mathematics, but not the only one.

werner is of french nationality was educated there and is a professor in orsay.

perelman of course is russian and was educated there, but has also spent time in the US.

it seems fair to say that mathematicians travel around a lot, and it is hard to identify a center.
