# Zurich Lectures in Advanced Mathematics

Mathematics in Zürich has a long and distinguished tradition, in which the writing of lecture notes volumes and research monographs play a prominent part. The *Zurich Lectures in Advanced Mathematics* series aims to make some of these publications better known to a wider audience.

The series has three main constituents: lecture notes on advanced topics given by internationally renowned experts, in particular lecture notes of "Nachdiplomvorlesungen", organized jointly by the Department of Mathematics and the Institute for Research in Mathematics (FIM) at ETH, graduate text books designed for the joint graduate program in Mathematics of the ETH and the University of Zürich, as well as contributions from researchers in residence.

Moderately priced, concise and lively in style, the volumes of this series will appeal to researchers and students alike, who seek an informed introduction to important areas of current research.
