 Gerard G. Emch is one of the pioneers of the C*algebraic approach to quantum and classical statistical mechanics. In a prolific scientific career spanning nearly five decades, he has been one of the creative influences in the general area of mathematical physics. The present volume is a collection of tributes, from former students, colleagues, and friends, on the occasion of his 70th birthday. The articles featured here are a small yet representative sample of the breadth and reach of some of the ideas from mathematical physics. It is also a testimony to the impact that Emch's work has had on several generations of mathematical physicists as well as to the diversity of mathematical methods used to understand them.
