"This book is a unique and wonderful collection of papers presented at a conference honoring one of the most productive, influential and still young mathematicians of the 20th century, I. M. Gelfand. As the title suggests, the articles refer to the connections between several fields: geometry, physics, representation theory, algebraic geometry.... The authors of the papers are some of the best mathematicians of present day...[and] most of them emphasize the crucial contribution that Gelfand's work had in many different ways.... [T]he papers are unique, very deep and very well written. Mathematicians and graduate students will find lots of connections, ideas and inspiration in this wonderful collection of papers."   —MAA
