 The University of Virginia (Charlottesville) hosted an international conference on Infinitedimensional Aspects of Representation Theory and Applications. This volume contains papers resulting from the minicourses and talks given at the meeting. Beyond the techniques and ideas related to representation theory, the book demonstrates connections to number theory, algebraic geometry, and mathematical physics. Specific topics covered include Hecke algebras, quantum groups, infinitedimensional Lie algebras, quivers, modular representations, and GromovWitten invariants. The book is suitable for graduate students and researchers interested in representation theory. Readership Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in representation theory.
