About this book

This volume, dedicated to Bertram Kostant on the occasion of his 65th birthday, is a collection of 22 invited papers by leading mathematicians working in Lie theory, geometry, algebra, and mathematical physics. Kostant’s fundamental work in all these areas has provided deep new insights and connections, and has created new fields of research. The papers gathered here present original research articles as well as expository papers, broadly reflecting the range of Kostant’s work.

Reviews

"[The papers] are of high interest and high quality and make this volume one of the most interesting and coherent collective publications this reviewer has ever seen."

–Int. Math. Nach.
