A publication of the Mathematical Society of Japan

In 2007, Professor Akihiro Tsuchiya of Nagoya University reached the
retirement age of sixty-three. He has played a significant role in
mathematical physics over the decades, most particularly in the
foundation of conformal field theory, which was the first nontrivial
example of a mathematically rigorous quantum field theory.

This volume contains the proceedings of the international conference on
the occasion of his retirement. Included are conformal field theories
and related topics such as solvable statistical models, representation
theory of affine algebras, monodromy preserving deformations, and
string theories. Readers interested in these subjects will find
exciting and stimulating insights and questions from these
articles.

Published for the Mathematical Society of Japan by Kinokuniya, Tokyo, and distributed worldwide, except in Japan, by the AMS.

Volumes in this series are freely available electronically 5 years post-publication.

#### Readership

Graduate students and researchers interested in conformal field theories, representation theory of affine algebras, monodromy preserving deformations, and string theories.
