This volume includes several lecture notes on the fundamentals and elementary techniques of integrable field theories and on their applications to low-dimensional physics systems contributed by leading scientists in the respective fields. The main topics covered are various aspects of the thermodynamic Bethe ansatz, form factors, Calogero (and related) models, sigma models, conformal boundary conditions, etc. The volume presents both pedagogical material and a current research trend in the field.The proceedings have been selected for coverage in:* Index to Scientific & Technical Proceedings (ISTP CDROM version / ISI Proceedings)
