Gauge theory, symplectic geometry and symplectic topology are important areas at the crossroads of several mathematical disciplines. The present book, with expertly written surveys of recent developments in these areas, includes some of the first expository material of Seiberg-Witten theory, which has revolutionised the subjects since its introduction in late 1994. Topics covered include: introductions to Seiberg-Witten theory, to applications of the S-W theory to four-dimensional manifold topology, and to the classification of symplectic manifolds; an introduction to the theory of pseudo-holomorphic curves and to quantum cohomology; algebraically integrable Hamiltonian systems and moduli spaces; the stable topology of gauge theory, Morse-Floer theory; pseudo-convexity and its relations to symplectic geometry; generating functions; Frobenius manifolds and topological quantum field theory.

The book provides a unique collection of in-depth mathematical, statistical, and modeling methods and techniques for life sciences, as well as their applications in a number of areas within life sciences. It also includes a range of new ideas that represent emerging frontiers in life sciences where the application of such quantitative methods and techniques is becoming increasingly important. The book is aimed at researchers in academia, practitioners and graduate students who want to foster interdisciplinary collaborations required to meet the challenges at the interface of modern life sciences and mathematics.

In presenting this treatment of homological algebra, it is a pleasure to acknowledge the help and encouragement which I have had from all sides. Homological algebra arose from many sources in algebra and topology. Decisive examples came from the study of group extensions and their factor sets, a subject I learned in joint work with OTTO SCHIL LING. A further development of homological ideas, with a view to their topological applications, came in my long collaboration with SAMUEL ElLENBERG; to both collaborators, especial thanks. For many years the Air Force Office of Scientific Research supported my research projects on various subjects now summarized here; it is a pleasure to acknowledge their lively understanding of basic science. Both REINHOLD BAER and JOSEF SCHMID read and commented on my entire manuscript; their advice has led to many improvements. ANDERS KOCK and JACQUES RIGUET have read the entire galley proof and caught many slips and obscurities. Among the others whose sug gestions have served me well, I note FRANK ADAMS, LOUIS AUSLANDER, WILFRED COCKCROFT, ALBRECHT DOLD, GEOFFREY HORROCKS, FRIED RICH KASCH, JOHANN LEICHT, ARUNAS LIULEVICIUS, JOHN MOORE, DIE TER PUPPE, JOSEPH YAO, and a number of my current students at the University of Chicago - not to m~ntion the auditors of my lectures at Chicago, Heidelberg, Bonn, Frankfurt, and Aarhus. My wife, DOROTHY, has cheerfully typed more versions of more chapters than she would like to count. Messrs.

This book is the result of collaboration by scholars in developmental psychology and educational sciences from six European Countries (Austria, Denmark, France, Germany, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom) and Canada and the United States. It provides an overview of innovative research on emotions in learning from a psychological and pedagogical point of view. Indeed, emotions have recently emerged as one of the main factors of learning. With this book, the reader will not only acquire an understanding of emotions in learning but also propositions for interventions that seek to help children, adolescents (pupils, students) and adults (teachers) to improve their emotional experiences and comprehensions in the context of learning and teaching.

Mein Leben, oder zumindest das, was diesen Namen verdient -ein außer gewöhnlich glückliches Leben mit einigen Schicksalsschlägen -erstreckte sich auf die Zeit zwischen dem 6. Mai 1906, dem Tag meiner Geburt, und dem 24. Mai 1986, dem Todestag meiner Frau und Gefährtin Eveline. Wenn auf diesen Seiten, die ihr gewidmet sind, von meiner Frau recht wenig die Rede sein wird, heißt das nicht, daß sie in meinem Leben und in meinen Gedanken einen geringen Platz eingenommen hätte. Sie war im Gegenteil, beinahe vom Tag unserer ersten Begegnung an, so eng damit verwoben, daß von mir oder von ihr zu sprechen ein und dasselbe ist. Ihre Anwesenheit beziehungsweise ihre Abwesenheit bestimmte die Textur meines ganzen Lebens. Was könnte ich anderes dazu sagen, als daß unsere Ehe eine von jenen war, die La Rochefoucauld Lügen strafen? »Fulsere vere candidi mihi soles . . . . « Ebenso wird meine Schwester kaum erwähnt werden. Es ist schon lange her, daß ich meine Erinnerungen an sie Simone Petrement mitgeteilt habe, die sie in ihre gute Biographie La vie de Simone Weil einfließen ließ, wo man viele Einzelheiten über unsere gemeinsame Kindheit erfahren kann, und es wäre unnötig, dies hier zu wiederholen. Als Kinder waren wir unzertrennlich, aber ich war der große Bruder und sie die kleine Schwester. Später waren wir selten zusammen, und meist sprachen wir in scherzhaftem Ton miteinander, denn sie hatte ein fröhliches und humorvolles Naturell, wie alle, die sie kannten, bestätigt haben.
