Differential geometry and analytic group theory are among the most powerful tools in mathematical physics. This volume presents review articles on a wide variety of applications of these techniques in classical continuum physics, gauge theories, quantization procedures, and the foundations of quantum theory. The articles, written by leading scientists, address both researchers and grad- uate students in mathematics, physics, and philosophy of science.
