In 2007, Professor Akihiro Tsuchiya of Nagoya University reached the retirement age of sixtythree. He has played a significant role in mathematical physics over the decades, most particularly in the foundation of conformal field theory, which was the first nontrivial example of a mathematically rigorous quantum field theory. This volume contains the proceedings of the international conference on the occasion of his retirement. Included are conformal field theories and related topics such as solvable statistical models, representation theory of affine algebras, monodromy preserving deformations, and string theories. Readers interested in these subjects will find exciting and stimulating insights and questions from these articles. Volumes in this series are freely available electronically 5 years postpublication. Published for the Mathematical Society of Japan by Kinokuniya, Tokyo, and distributed worldwide, except in Japan, by the AMS. Readership Graduate students and researchers interested in conformal field theories, representation theory of affine algebras, monodromy preserving deformations, and string theories.
