 This volume presents the proceedings of the conference on Operator Algebras and Mathematical Physics held in Constanta, Romania. The conference gathered experts to examine and discuss the interesting connections between these two areas. The book contains 24 research and expository papers reflecting a broad variety of topics from both domains: \(C^*\)algebras and dynamical systems, geometric and operator algebraic quantization, modular invariants, \(q\)commutation relations, superselection theory, positive linear maps, groupoids, spectral analysis of Hamiltonians, random operators, and quantum systems. The material is suitable for graduate students and research mathematicians interested in operator algebras, mathematical physics, and their interaction. A publication of the Theta Foundation. Distributed worldwide, except in Romania, by the AMS. Readership Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in operator algebras and mathematical physics. Table of Contents  E. J.
