In honor of Frederick W. Gehring on the occasion of his 70th birthday, an international conference on "Quasiconformal mappings and analysis" was held in Ann Arbor in August 1995. The 9 main speakers of the conference (Astala, Earle, Jones, Kra, Lehto, Martin, Pommerenke, Sullivan, and Vaisala) provide broad expository articles on various aspects of quasiconformal mappings and their relations to other areas of analysis. 12 other distinguished mathematicians contribute articles to this volume.
