The book covers topics in the theory of algebraic transformation groups and algebraic varieties which are very much at the frontier of mathematical research. The contributors are all internationally well-known specialists, and hence the book will have great appeal to researchers and graduate students in mathematics and mathematical physics.

"... This book gives a good flavour of some current research in algebraic transofrmation groups and their applications. ..."
