Up to 2 WeeksUsually despatched within 2 weeks


This is the second of two volumes dedicated to the scientific heritage of F. A. Berezin (1931-1980). Before his untimely death, Berezin had an important influence on physics and mathematics, discovering new ideas in mathematical physics, representation theory, analysis, geometry, and other areas of mathematics. His crowning achievements were the introduction of a new notion of deformation quantization and Grassmannian analysis ('supermathematics'). Collected here are papers by many of his colleagues and others who worked in related areas, representing a wide spectrum of topics in statistical and theoretical physics and allied areas of mathematics. In particular, several papers discuss various aspects of quantum field theory and related questions of supersymmetry, geometry, and representation theory. Other papers are devoted to problems of quasi-classical approximation and mathematical models of statistical physics.
