A co-publication of the AMS and Fields Institute

This book covers a wide range of phenomena in the natural sciences dominated by notions of universality and renormalization. The contributions in this volume are equally broad in their approach to these phenomena, offering the mathematical as well as the perspective of the applied sciences. They explore renormalization theory in quantum field theory and statistical physics, and its connections to modern mathematics as well as physics on scales from the microscopic to the macroscopic.

Titles in this series are co-published with the Fields Institute for Research in Mathematical Sciences (Toronto, Ontario, Canada).

#### Readership

Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in quantum field theory, statistical physics, physics and number theory, nonlinear dynamics, probability,geometic function theory, differential equations.
