Lattice Statistics And Mathematical Physics: Festschrift Dedicated To Professor Fa-yueh Wu On The Occasion Of His 70th Birthday, Proceedings Of Apctp-nankai Joint Symposium

This book contains thirty-six short papers on recent progress in a variety of subjects in mathematical and theoretical physics, written for the proceedings of a symposium in honor of the seventieth birthday of Professor F Y Wu, held at the Nankai Institute of Mathematics, October 7-11, 2001. The collection of papers is aimed at researchers, including graduate students, with an interdisciplinary interest and gives a brief introduction to many of the topics of current interest. These include new results on exactly solvable models in statistical mechanics, integrable through the Yang-Baxter equations, quantum groups, fractional statistics, random matrices, index theorems on the lattice, combinatorics, and other related topics.
