About this book


The goal of this book is to extend the understanding of the fundamental role of generalizations of Lie theory and related non-commutative and non-associative structures in mathematics and physics.
This volume is devoted to the interplay between several rapidly expanding research fields in contemporary mathematics and physics concerned with generalizations of the main structures of Lie theory aimed at quantization and discrete and non-commutative extensions of differential calculus and geometry, non-associative structures, actions of groups and semi-groups, non-commutative dynamics, non-commutative geometry and applications in physics and beyond.
The book will be a useful source of inspiration for a broad spectrum of researchers and for research students, and includes contributions from several large research communities in modern mathematics and physics.
This volume consists of 5 parts comprising 25 chapters, which were contributed by 32 researchers from 12 different countries. All contributions in the volume have been refereed.
