Tribute to the vision and legacy of Israel Moiseevich Gel'fand Written by leading mathematicians, these invited papers reflect the unity of mathematics as a whole, with particular emphasis on the many connections among the fields of geometry, physics, and representation theory Topics include conformal field theory, K-theory, noncommutative geometry, gauge theory, representations of infinite-dimensional Lie algebras, and various aspects of the Langlands program

"This book is a unique and wonderful collection of papers presented at a conference honoring one of the most productive, influential and still young mathematicians of the 20th century, I. M. Gelfand. As the title suggests, the articles refer to the connections between several fields: geometry, physics, representation theory, algebraic geometry.... The authors of the papers are some of the best mathematicians of present day...[and] most of them emphasize the crucial contribution that Gelfand's work had in many different ways.... [T]he papers are unique, very deep and very well written. Mathematicians and graduate students will find lots of connections, ideas and inspiration in this wonderful collection of papers." -MAA
