This Proceedings Volume contains 32 articles on various interesting areas of present-day functional analysis and its applications: Banach spaces and their geometry, operator ideals, Banach and operator algebras, operator and spectral theory, Frechet spaces and algebras, function and sequence spaces. The authors have taken much care with their articles and many papers present important results and methods in active fields of research. Several survey type articles (at the beginning and the end of the book) will be very useful for mathematicians who want to learn "what is going on" in some particular field of research.
