 This volume contains articles covering a wide range of current directions in modern statistical mechanics and dynamical systems theory. Scientists, researchers, and students working in mathematical physics and statistical mechanics will find this book of great interest. Among the topics covered are: phase transition problems, including superconductivity and superfluidity; methods of nonequilibrium statistical mechanics and fluctuation theory; quantum collective phenomena; superradiance; spin glasses; polaron problems; chains of Bogolyubov equations and kinetic equations; algebraic aspects of quantumdynamical semigroups; the collective variables method; and qualitative properties of classical dynamical systems.
