Comprises the proceedings of a NATO Advanced Study Institute (ASI) on Quantum Fields and Quantum Space Time held July/August 1996 in Carg<_60_e>se, France. The volume's 17 contributions include discussion of the following topics: non- commutative gauge fields from quantum groups; noncommutative differential geometry and the structure of space time; quantum integrable models on 1+1 discrete space time; supersymmetry and non-commutative geometry; quantization of space and time in 3 and in 4 space-time dimensions; integrable classical and quantum gravity; exercises in equivariant cohomology; some complex quantum manifolds and their geometry; T-duality and the moment map; symmetries of dimensionally reduced string effective action; non-local observables and confinement in BF formulation in Yang-Mills theory; disorder operators, quantum doubles, and Haag duality in 1+1 dimensions; and the cohomology and homology of quantum field theory.
