Being an advanced account of certain aspects of general topology, the primary purpose of this volume is to provide the reader with an overview of recent developments. The papers cover basic fields such as metrization and extension of maps, as well as newly-developed fields like categorical topology and topological dynamics. Each chapter may be read independently of the others, with a few exceptions. It is assumed that the reader has some knowledge of set theory, algebra, analysis and basic general topology.
