This is the second of o series of four volumes containing the Proceedings of the Summer Seminar on Applied Mathematics, arranged by the American Mathematical Society and held at the University of Colorado in 1 960. The Seminar was under the sponsorship of the National Science Foundation, Office of Naval Research, Atomic Energy Commission, and the Office of Ordnance Research.

This Seminar was designed to enlarge the much-needed contact between mathematicians and physicists. The purpose of the Seminar was primarily instructional, with emphasis on basic courses in classical quantum theory, quantum theory of fields and elementary particles, and statistical physics. The publication of these volumes is intended to extend the same information presented at the Seminar to a much wider public than was privileged to actually attend, while at the same time serving as a permanent reference for those who did attend.
