Because of its many applications to mathematics and mathematical physics, the
representation theory of infinite-dimensional Lie and quantized enveloping
algebras comprises an important area of current research. This volume includes
articles from the proceedings of an international conference, “Infinite-Dimensional Lie Theory and Conformal Field Theory”, held at the University
of Virginia. Many of the contributors to the volume are prominent researchers
in the field.

This conference provided an opportunity for mathematicians and physicists to
interact in an active research area of mutual interest. The talks focused on
recent developments in the representation theory of affine, quantum affine, and
extended affine Lie algebras and Lie superalgebras. They also highlighted
applications to conformal field theory, integrable and disordered systems.

Some of the articles are expository and accessible to a broad readership of
mathematicians and physicists interested in this area; others are research
articles that are appropriate for more advanced readers.

#### Readership

Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in infinite-dimensional Lie algebras and its applications in mathematical physics.
