Speakers at the two sessions of the 2003 Annual Meeting of

the American Mathematical Society, held in Baltimore, and

the Wavelet Workshop held in College Park, Maryland,

out of which the papers in this volume arose

Symbols are used in the list to designate the specific sessions, as follows:

(S):

AMS Special Session on "Wavelets, Frames and Operator Theory", at the 2003

Annual Meeting of the American Mathematical Society (AMS-MAA-ASL-

AWM-NAM-SIAM Joint Mathematics Meetings, Baltimore, MD, January

15-18, 2003);

(C): AMS Session on "Operator Theory", at the same Annual Meeting;

(W):

NSF Focused Research Group Workshop on the theme "Modulation Spaces

and the Continuous Wavelet Transform" (University of Maryland, College

Park, MD, January 19-21, 2003).

The ten speakers marked (C) had requested to be part of our Special Session,

but unfortunately could not be included due to lack of space. The AMS incorpo-

rated these speakers into a related session of contributed talks. We thank the AMS

for kindly honoring our request to include them in this way, and we consider them

informally included in our session for the purpose of this volume.

Affiliations follow the session symbols for each speaker. Where more than one

affiliation is listed, the first is from the time of the sessions, and the others are later

locations.
