SUMMARY

Dedicated to the memory of Chih-Han Sah, this volume continues a long tradition of one of the most influential mathematical seminars of this century. A number of topics are covered, including combinatorial geometry, connections between logic and geometry, Lie groups, algebras and their representations. An additional area of importance is noncommutative algebra and geometry, and its relations to modern physics. Distinguished mathematicians contributing to this work: T.V. Alekseevskaya V. Kac
