These 25 papers from a conference held in August 1998 at Pusan National U. provide a broad overview of contemporary group theory, with a particular emphasis on geometric and topological methods. Topics covered include: deformations and rigidity, combinatorial group theory and wild metric complexes, generalized triangle groups, HNN extensions, Eilenberg-Ganea Conjecture, cyclically presented groups, Takahashi manifolds, wreath products, reduction formulae, group actions on graphs and designs, Grushko-Neumann theorem, and variations on a theme of Higman and Conder. Includes a list of the authors and participants with contact information. Conference sponsors included the Korea Science and Engineering Foundation and International Mathematical Union Commission on Development and Exchange. Lacks an index.
