This first of a two-volume collection is a celebration of the scientific heritage of F. A. Berezin (1931-1980). Before his untimely death, Berezin had an important influence on physics and mathematics, discovering new ideas in mathematical physics, representation theory, analysis, geometry, and other areas of mathematics. His crowning achievements were the introduction of a new notion of deformation quantization, and Grassmannian analysis ("supermathematics").

Collected here are papers by his many of his colleagues and others who worked in related areas, representing a wide spectrum of topics in mathematical physics and allied areas of mathematics. In particular, the papers discuss quantization, invariant integration, spectral theory, and representation theory.


Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in group representation theory, supermathematics, and spectral analysis.
