    Advances in Soviet Mathematics
    Volume: 91992; 267 pp
    MSC: Primary 03; 05; 20; 28; 46; 53; 58; 81;

    This volume presents research conducted between 1989 and 1991 by the participants in the Leningrad Seminar on representation theory, dynamical systems, and their applications, headed by A. M. Vershik. The primary areas covered here are mathematical physics, Lie groups and their representations, infinite-dimensional groups, topology, and dynamical systems. The book contains a number of useful introductory surveys; for example, one paper by Vaksman and Soĭbelman provides a systematic description of the theory of quantum groups in the spirit of representation theory—a new and popular area for which there are few introductory surveys. A portion of the book is devoted to adic transformations and substitutions, a new area of ergodic theory. With a balance of survey papers and frontier research results, this book will appeal to graduate students and researchers alike.

    Readership

    Graduate students, specialists, and mathematical physicists.
