The 20 papers contained in this volume span the areas of mathematical physics, dynamical systems, and probability. Yakov Sinai is one of the most important and influential mathematicians of our time, having won the Boltzmann Medal (1986), the Dirac Medal (1992), Dannie Heinemann Prize for Mathematical Physics (1989), Nemmers Prize (2002), and the Wolf Prize in Mathematics (1997). He is well-known as both a mathematician and a physicist, with numerous theorems and proofs bearing his name in both fields, and this book should be of interest to researchers from all fields of the physical sciences.This volume follows Volume I.
