 The volume represents the proceedings of the 21st International Conference on Operator Theory, held in Timisoara, Romania, in 2006. Three of the included papers are surveys on active areas of research:  renormalization group in algebraic quantum field theory
 composition operators on HardyOrlicz and BanachOrlicz spaces
 operator ideals on Hilbert spaces
The remaining fourteen papers contain original research on a wide variety of topics:  single operator theory
 Banach algebras
 \(C^*\)algebras
 von Neumann algebras
 Hilbert and Banach modules
 differential and integral operators
 noncommutative probability
 spectral theory
