About this book

Introduction

Kurt Symanzik was certainly one of the most outstanding theoretical physicists of our time. For thirty years, until his untimely death in 1983, he helped to shape the present form of quantum field theory and its application to elementary particle physics. In memoriam of Kurt" Symanzik leading scientists present their most recent results, giving, at the same time, an overview of the state of the art. This collection was originally published in Vol. 97, 1/2 (1985) of Communications in Mathematical Physics. They range over various inter­ related topics of interest to Kurt Symanzik. We hope that making this collection available in an accessible and inexpensive way will benefit the physics community. The Publisher Contents To the Memory of Kurt Symanzik 1 By A. Jaffe, H.
