This Festschrift had its origins in a conference called SimonFest held
at Caltech, March 27–31, 2006, to honor Barry Simon's 60th
birthday. It is not a proceedings volume in the usual sense since the
emphasis of the majority of the contributions is on reviews of the
state of the art of certain fields, with particular focus on recent
developments and open problems. The bulk of the articles in this
Festschrift are of this survey form, and a few review Simon's
contributions to a particular area. Part 1 contains surveys in the
areas of Quantum Field Theory, Statistical Mechanics, Nonrelativistic
Two-Body and \(N\)-Body Quantum Systems, Resonances, Quantum
Mechanics with Electric and Magnetic Fields, and the Semiclassical
Limit. Part 2 contains surveys in the areas of Random and Ergodic
Schrödinger Operators, Singular Continuous Spectrum, Orthogonal
Polynomials, and Inverse Spectral Theory. In several cases, this
collection of surveys portrays both the history of a subject and its
current state of the art. Exhaustive lists of references enhance the
presentation offered in these surveys.

A substantial part of the contributions to this Festschrift are
survey articles on the state of the art of certain areas with special
emphasis on open problems. This will benefit graduate students as well as
researchers who want to get a quick, yet comprehensive introduction into an
area covered in this volume.
