Main description: Dieser Band beinhaltet eine Sammlung wissenschaftlicher Forschungsbeiträge zu unendlich-dimensionalen Gruppen und Mannigfaltigkeiten in der Mathematik und Quantenphysik.
Main description: The volume is a collection of refereed research papers on infinite dimensional groups and manifolds in mathematics and quantum physics. Topics covered are: new classes of Lie groups of mappings, the Burgers equation, the Chern-Weil construction in infinite dimensions, the hamiltonian approach to quantum field theory, and different aspects of large N limits ranging from approximation methods in quantum mechanics to modular forms and string/gauge theory duality. The volume gives an overview of important themes of research at the forefront of mathematics and theoretical physics.
