This book resulted from the lectures held at The Fields Institute (Waterloo, ON, Canada). Leading international experts presented current results on the theory of $C^*$-algebras and von Neumann algebras, together with recent work on the classification of $C^*$-algebras. Much of the material in the book is appearing here for the first time and is not available elsewhere in the literature.
