The University of Virginia (Charlottesville) hosted an international conference on Infinite-dimensional Aspects of Representation Theory and Applications. This volume contains papers resulting from the mini-courses and talks given at the meeting. Beyond the techniques and ideas related to representation theory, the book demonstrates connections to number theory, algebraic geometry, and mathematical physics. The specific topics covered include Hecke algebras, quantum groups, infinite-dimensional Lie algebras, quivers, modular representations, and Gromov-Witten invariants. The book is suitable for graduate students and researchers interested in representation theory.
