 This volume contains the proceedings of the AMSIMSSIAM Joint Summer Research Conference on Nielsen Theory and Dynamical Systems, held in June 1992 at Mount Holyoke College. Focusing on the interface between Nielsen fixed point theory and dynamical systems, this book provides an almost complete survey of the state of the art of Nielsen theory. Most of the articles are expository, making them accessible to both graduate students and researchers in algebraic topology, fixed point theory, and dynamical systems. Readership Researchers and graduate students in algebraic topology, fixed point theory or dynamical systems. Table of Contents  Ll. Alsedà, S. Baldwin, J. Llibre, R. Swanson, and W.
