About this book
The Symposium "Symmetries in Science II" was held at Southern Illinois University, Carbondale, during the period March 24-26, 1986, following the Einstein Centennial Symposium "Symmetries in Science" after a lapse of seven years. As it was the case for the original Symposium, the 1986 Symposium was truly interdisciplinary and truly international.
