 This collection of papers by outstanding contributors in analysis, partial differential equations, and several complex variables is dedicated to Professor François Treves in honor of his 65th birthday. There are five important survey articles covering analytic singularities, holomorphically nondegenerate algebraic hypersurfaces, analyticity of CR mappings, removable singularities of vector fields, and local solvability for systems of vector fields. The other papers are original research contributions on topics such as KleinGordon and Dirac equations, Toeplitz operators, elliptic structures, complexification of Lie groups, pseudodifferential operators, nonlinear equations, CR and Mizohata structures, analytic hypoellipticity, overdetermined systems, and group invariant convex hypersurfaces.
