This collection contains articles reflecting the most recent activity in topology and mathematical physics presented at the S. Novikov Seminar held in Moscow. Papers in the volume are devoted to problems in geometry, topology, and mathematical physics, including applications of topology to physical problems. Such a combination is a long-standing tradition of the seminar, which originated in 1965.


Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in topology, integrable system theory, function analysis, and mathematical and theoretical physics.
