 Volume 2: Differential Equations and Representation Theory, edited by Donald G. Babbitt, Ramesh Gangolli, and K. R. Parthasarathy; 648 pages Volume 3: Physics, Analysis, and Reflections and Reviews, edited by Enrico G. Beltrametti, Gianni Cassinelli, Rita Fioresi, Anatoly N. Kochubei, and K. R. Parthasarathy; 718 pages These two volumes constitute a selection of papers of V. S. Varadarajan. An earlier volume of Selected Papers was published by the American Mathematical Society and International Press in 1998. The papers reproduced in these two volumes include not only the articles published since 1998 but also some important papers published earlier which were not included in the original Selected Papers for reasons of space and other limitations. The current volumes contain the papers on fundamental questions of individual and families of meromorphic differential equations that are treated by a new group theoretic and functional approach; papers on representation theory of Lie groups; papers on foundations of physics, supersymmetry, and Padic aspects of quantum physical theories; papers on analysis, especially oscillatory integrals, on semisimple Lie groups, their conjugacy classes, and their flag manifolds; and finally, several review articles, both personal and mathematical, on a number of the above topics. The volumes are divided into sections by topics and in each section the editors have included a brief summary of the contents of the section, put the papers in their historical context and, in the process, raised interesting new problems.
