L.D.Faddeev's Seminar on Mathematical Physics

Professor L. D. Faddeev's seminar at Steklov Mathematical Institute (St. Petersburg, Russia) has a record of more than 30 years of intensive work which has helped to shape modern mathematical physics. This collection, honoring Professor Faddeev's 65th anniversary, has been prepared by his students and colleagues. Topics covered in the volume include classical and quantum integrable systems (both analytic and algebraic aspects), quantum groups and generalizations, quantum field theory, and deformation quantization. Included is a history of the seminar highlighting important developments, such as the invention of the quantum inverse scattering method and of quantum groups. The book will serve nicely as a comprehensive, up-to-date resource on the topic.
