 Aimed at researchers and advanced graduate students in mathematical physics, this book constitutes the proceedings of a conference on mathematical quantum field theory and related topics. The conference was held at the Centre de Recherches Mathéematiques of the Université de Montréal in September 1987. With articles by some of the top researchers in the field, this book will bring readers to the leading edge of research in a number of areas of mathematical physics. Titles in this series are copublished with the Canadian Mathematical Society. Members of the Canadian Mathematical Society may order at the AMS member price. Table of Contents  A. S.
