The Cargese summer time university "Low Dimensional purposes of Quantum box conception" was once held in July 1995. the varsity used to be devoted to the reminiscence of Claude Itzykson. This consultation desirous about the hot growth in quantum box concept in dimen sions with a specific emphasis on integrable versions and purposes of quantum box concept to condensed topic physics. a wide fraction of the varsity was once additionally dedicated to a close evaluate of the interesting advancements in 4 dimensional large symmetric Yang-Mills thought. the range of the themes provided represent, in our opinion, probably the most beautiful positive aspects of those court cases. a few contributions represent a truly thor ough advent to their subject material and may be useful to complicated scholars within the box whereas others current fullyyt new learn, now not formerly released, and may be of substantial curiosity to the professional. there have been extensive introductory lectures at the software of conformal box conception ideas to disordered structures, at the quantum corridor influence, on quantum in tegrable structures, at the thermodynamic Bethe Ansatz and at the new advancements in supersymmetric gauges theories. The computation of the 3 aspect functionality of the Liouville version utilizing conformal bootstrap equipment was once provided in detail.
