In these proceedings of the first NATO Science Forum, distinguished physicists from around the world evaluate, in depth, three evolving frontiers--semiconductor quantum structures, including the subject of the quantum Hall effect; high temperature superconductivity; and scanning tunneling microscopy--reviewing the progress made in the last few years and exploring the implications for the future.
