 This book contains papers presented at the Second International Conference on Algebra, held in Barnaul in August 1991 in honor of the memory of A. I. Shirshov (19211981). Many of the results presented here have not been published elsewhere in the literature. The collection provides a panorama of current research in PI, associative, Lie, and Jordan algebras and discusses the interrelations of these areas with geometry and physics. Other topics in group theory and homological algebra are also covered. Readership Postgraduates and researchers in mathematics and physics. Table of Contents  L. A. Bokut' and I. P.
