This volume contains surveys and research articles by leading experts in several areas of dynamical systems that have recently experienced substantial progress. Some of the major surveys focus on symplectic geometry; smooth rigidity; hyperbolic, parabolic, and symbolic dynamics; and ergodic theory. Students and researchers in dynamical systems, geometry, and related areas will find this a fascinating look at the state of the art.
