In celebration of Princeton University's 250th anniversary,
the mathematics department held a conference entitled “Prospects in
Mathematics”. The purpose of the conference was to speculate on future
directions of research in mathematics.

This collection of articles provides a rich panorama of current
mathematical activity in many research areas. From Gromov's lecture on
quantitative differential topology to Witten's discussion of string
theory, new ideas and techniques transfixed the audience of
international mathematicians. The volume contains 11 articles by
leading mathematicians, including historical presentations by
J. Milnor and D. Spencer. It provides a guide to some of the
most significant mathematical work of the past decade.
