This volume is dedicated to the memory of the Russian mathematician D. A. Gudkov. It contains papers written by his friends, students, and collaborators and is devoted mainly to the areas where D. A. Gudkov made important contributions. The main topic is the topology of real algebraic varieties. Several papers include new results on the topology of real plane algebraic curves (the Hilbert 16th problem).

#### Readership

Graduate students and researchers interested in algebraic geometry and algebraic topology.
