This volume is targeted at theoretical physicists, mathematical physicists and mathematicians working on mathematical models for physical systems based on symmetry methods and in the field of Lie theory understood in the widest sense. It includes contributions on Lie theory, with two papers by the famous mathematician Kac (one paper with Bakalov), further papers by Aoki, Moens. Some other important contributions are in: field theory - Todorov, Grosse, Kreimer, Sokatchev, Gomez; string theory — Minwalla, Staudacher, Kostov; integrable systems - Belavin, Helminck, Ragoucy; quantum-mechanical and probabilistic systems — Goldin, Van der Jeugt, Leandre; quantum groups and related objects — Jakobsen, Arnaudon, Andruskiewitsch; and others.The proceedings have been selected for coverage in:• Index to Scientific & Technical Proceedings® (ISTP® / ISI Proceedings)• Index to Scientific & Technical Proceedings (ISTP CDROM version / ISI Proceedings)• CC Proceedings — Engineering & Physical Sciences
The Fourth Conference on Infinite Dimensional Harmonic Analysis brought together experts in harmonic analysis, operator algebras and probability theory. Most of the articles deal with the limit behavior of systems with many degrees of freedom in the presence of symmetry constraints. This volume gives new directions in research bringing together probability theory and representation theory.
