This volume describes research on the differential geometry of foliations, in particular Riemannian foliations, done over the last few years. It can be read by graduate students and researchers with a background in differential geometry and Riemannian geometry. Of particular interest will be the Hodge theory for the transversal Laplacian, and applications of the heat equation method to Riemannian foliations. There are chapters on the spectral theory for Riemannian foliations, on Connes' point of view of foliations as examples of noncommutative spaces, and a chapter on infinite-dimensional examples of Riemannian foliations.
