 This volume contains carefully selected contributions by participants at the Seventeenth International Conference on Operator Theory held at the University of Timişoara (Romania). A large variety of topics are covered, including single operator theory, \(C^*\)algebras, spectral theory, special classes of concrete operators, and holomorphic operator functions. The book also includes applications in other areas of mathematics and science. A publication of the Theta Foundation. Distributed worldwide, except in Romania, by the AMS.
