 This proceedings volume is from the international conference on Banach algebras and their applications held at the University of Alberta (Edmonton). It contains a collection of refereed research papers and highlevel expository articles that offer a panorama of Banach algebra theory and its manifold applications. Topics in the book range from \(K\)theory to abstract harmonic analysis to operator theory. It is suitable for graduate students and researchers interested in Banach algebras.
