The nine papers of this volume were presented at the March 1995 Symposium honouring Raymond L. Orbach on his 60th birthday. The range of topics reflects the breadth of Dr. Orbach's own research. It includes magnetism and transport in nanostructures, crystal fields in superconducting cuprates, fractons and scaling in disordered systems, glassy relaxation, inelastic atom-crystal scattering, bosonization in "d">1, and microwave effects in superconductors.
