The classical theory of dynamical systems has tended to concentrate on Z-actions or R-actions. In recent years, however, there has been considerable progress in the study of higher dimensional actions (i.e. Zd or Rd with d>1). This book represents the proceedings of the 1993-4 Warwick Symposium on Zd actions. It comprises a mixture of surveys and original articles that span many of the diverse facets of the subject, including important connections with statistical mechanics, number theory and algebra.
