Quantum Fields and Quantum Space Time

The 1996 NATO Advanced Study Institute (ASI) followed the international tradi­ tion of the schools held in Cargese in 1976, 1979, 1983, 1987 and 1991. Impressive progress in quantum field theory had been made since the last school in 1991. Much of it is connected with the interplay of quantum theory...
