This volume contains the lectures given at the Second Max Born Symposium held near Wroclaw in Poland in September 1992. The various authoritative contributions provide an excellent review of recent developments in the field and embrace the following topics: spin structures; the interrelations between Cartan's and Chevalley's theory of spinors, Clifford algebras and particle models; the interrelations between twistors, supersymmetry and phase spaces; quantum deformations; noncommutative Hopf algebras; noncommutative calculus and its applications in electrodynamics and in gauge theory; and deformed Clifford algebras and "Z"3-graded algebras. For researchers and graduate students in mathematical and theoretical physics.
