The common topic of the eleven articles in this volume is ordered aperiodic systems realized either as point sets with the Delone property or as tilings of a Euclidean space. This emerging field of study is found at the crossroads of algebra, geometry, Fourier analysis, number theory, crystallography, and theoretical physics. The volume brings together contributions by leading specialists. Important advances in understanding the foundations of this new field are presented.
