Gerard G. Emch is one of the pioneers of the C*-algebraic approach
to quantum and classical statistical mechanics. In a prolific scientific
career spanning nearly five decades, he has been one of the
creative influences in the general area of mathematical physics. The present
volume is a collection of tributes, from former students, colleagues, and
friends, on the occasion of his 70th birthday. The articles
featured here are a small yet representative sample of the breadth and reach of
some of the ideas from mathematical physics.

It is also a testimony to the impact that Emch's work has had on
several generations of mathematical physicists as well as to the diversity of
mathematical methods used to understand them.
