The book contains survey and research articles devoted mainly togeometry and harmonic analysis of symmetric spaces and tocorresponding aspects of group representation theory. The volume isdedicated to the memory of Russian mathematician, F. I. Karpelevich(1927 — 2000). Of particular interest are the survey articles bySawyer on the Abel transform on noncompact Riemannian symmetricspaces, and by Anker and Ostellari on estimates for heat kernels onsuch spaces, as well as the article by Bernstein and Gindikin onintegral geometry for families of curves. There are also manyresearch papers on topics of current interest. The book is suitablefor graduate students and research mathematicians interested inharmonic analysis and representation theory.
