This volume contains the proceedings of the
AMS Special Session on New Developments in the Analysis of Nonlocal
Operators, held from October 28–30, 2016, at the University of
St. Thomas, Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Over the last decade there has been a resurgence of interest in
problems involving nonlocal operators, motivated by applications in
many areas such as analysis, geometry, and stochastic processes.

Problems represented in this volume include uniqueness for weak
solutions to abstract parabolic equations with fractional time
derivatives, the behavior of the one-phase Bernoulli-type free
boundary near a fixed boundary and its relation to a Signorini-type
problem, connections between fractional powers of the spherical
Laplacian and zeta functions from the analytic number theory and
differential geometry, and obstacle problems for a class of not
stable-like nonlocal operators for asset price models widely used in
mathematical finance.

The volume also features a comprehensive introduction to various
aspects of the fractional Laplacian, with many historical remarks and
an extensive list of references, suitable for beginners and more
seasoned researchers alike.

#### Readership

Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in analytic, geometric, and probabilistic aspects of nonlocal equations.
