This volume contains papers presented at the BSF-Gelbart Institute workshop, "Quantum Deformations of Algebras and their Representations", held 29 December 1991 to 3 January 1992 at Bar-Ilan University and the Weizmann Institute in Israel. This highly successful meeting attracted over 100 participants, bringing together internationally recognized specialists. Topics covered at the workshop ranged over many aspects of representation theory, including the geometry of reductive group actions, enveloping algebras of Lie algebras, deformation of algebras, and construction of quantum groups and their representation theory. Applications include invariants of knots and three-manifolds, current algebras, and string theory. Books in the series are published by the Bar-Ilan University and distributed worldwide by the American Mathematical Society.
