Summary:This book offers a panorama of recent advances in the theory of infinite groups. It contains survey papers contributed by leading specialists in group theory and other areas of mathematics. Topics addressed in the book include amenable groups, Kaehler groups, automorphism groups of rooted trees, rigidity, C*-algebras, random walks on groups, pro-p groups, Burnside groups, parafree groups, and Fuchsian groups. The accent is put on strong connections between group theory and other areas of mathematics, such as dynamical systems, geometry, operator algebras, probability theory, and others. This interdisciplinary approach makes the book interesting to a large mathematical audience. Contributors: G. Baumslag A.V. Borovik T. Delzant W. Dicks E. Formanek R. Grigorchuk M.
