Synopsis
Authoritative collection of surveys and papers that will be indispensable to all research workers in the area.
Synopsis
The ICMS Workshop on Geometric and Combinatorial Methods in Group Theory, held at Heriot-Watt University in 1993, brought together some of the leading research workers in the subject. Collected here are some of the survey articles and contributed papers, all refereed; they range over a wide number of topics in combinatorial and geometric group theory and related topics. The volume represents a summary of the current state of knowledge of the field, and as such will be indispensable to all research workers in the area.
