# Applications of Hypergroups and Related Measure Algebras

“The most important single thing about this
conference was that it brought together for the first time
representatives of all major groups of users of hypergroups. [They]
talked to each other about how they were using hypergroups in fields as
diverse as special functions, probability theory, representation theory,
measure algebras, Hopf algebras, and Hecke algebras. This led
to fireworks.”—from the Introduction

Hypergroups occur in a wide variety of contexts, and
mathematicians the world over have been discovering this same
mathematical structure hidden in very different applications. The
diverse viewpoints on the subject have led to the need for a common
perspective, if not a common theory. Presenting the proceedings of a
Joint Summer Research Conference held in Seattle in the summer of 1993,
this book will serve as a valuable starting point and reference tool for
the wide range of users of hypergroups and make it easier for an even
larger audience to use these structures in their work.

#### Readership

Advanced graduate students and researchers in measure algebras, statisticians and physicists.
