This volume represents the proceedings of the conference on
Noncommutative Geometric Methods in Global Analysis, held in honor of
Henri Moscovici, from June 29–July 4, 2009, in Bonn, Germany.

Henri Moscovici has made a number of major contributions to
noncommutative geometry, global analysis, and representation theory.
This volume, which includes articles by some of the leading experts in
these fields, provides a panoramic view of the interactions of
noncommutative geometry with a variety of areas of mathematics. It
focuses on geometry, analysis and topology of manifolds and singular
spaces, index theory, group representation theory, connections of
noncommutative geometry with number theory and arithmetic geometry, Hopf
algebras and their cyclic cohomology.
