## About this book

### Introduction

This volume contains the text of the lectures which were given at the Differential Geometry Meeting held at Liege in 1980 and at the Differential Geometry Meeting held at Leuven in 1981. The first of these meetings was more orientated toward mathematical physics; the second has a stronger flavour of analysis. The Editors are pleased to thank the lectures who contributed scientifically to these two meetings. They are also grateful to Professor M. F1ato who has encouraged publication of these contributions in the Mathematical Physics Studies Series. We also thank the F.N.R.S. who supported financially the Contact group in differential geometry. The Universite de Liege and the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven which have given us a warm hospitality have contributed to the success of these meetings. We express our gratitude. The Editors. M.
