This publication is an outgrowth of the Workshop on "Regulators in research, Geom etry and quantity thought" held on the Edmund Landau heart for examine in Mathematical research of The Hebrew college of Jerusalem in 1996. through the coaching and the maintaining of the workshop we have been significantly helped via the director of the Landau heart: Lior Tsafriri in the course of the time of the making plans of the convention, and Hershel Farkas in the course of the assembly itself. Organizing and working this workshop used to be a real excitement, because of the professional technical aid supplied through the Landau heart as a rule, and by means of its secretary Simcha Kojman specifically. we wish to specific our hearty because of them all. although, the articles assembled within the current quantity don't signify the complaints of this workshop; neither might all participants to the booklet make it to the assembly, nor do the contributions herein inevitably mirror talks given in Jerusalem. within the creation, we define our view of the idea to which this quantity intends to give a contribution. The the most important goal of the current quantity is to assemble innovations, tools, and effects from research, differential in addition to algebraic geometry, and quantity concept to be able to paintings in the direction of a deeper and extra accomplished knowing of regulators and secondary invariants. Our thank you visit the entire contributors of the workshop and authors of this quantity. may possibly the readers of this e-book get pleasure from and cash in on the mix of mathematical principles the following documented.
