In these proceedings from the July 2004 conference, contributors describe their work in mathematical physics, particularly in quantum field theory, acknowledging the mutual benefit mathematics and physics have shared when applied to each other. Aimed at graduate students and researchers, topics include the construction of graded differential algebra with ternary differential, thoughts on non-commutativity in membranes and matrices, discretized Virasoro algebra, Picard groups in rational conformal field theory, Shapovalov forms for Poisson Lie superalgebras, time-space and space-times, the index problem on manifolds with edges, quantum groups and bounded symmetric domains, quantization in deformation and monoidal Morita equivalence. Review articles include an evaluation of 40 years of use of the extremal projector method for Lie symmetries.
