Annotation In modern mathematical physics, classical together with quantum, geometrical & functional analytic methods are used simultaneously. Non-commutative geometry in particular is becoming a useful tool in quantum field theories. This book, aimed at advanced students & researchers, provides an introduction to these ideas. Researchers will benefit particularly from the extensive survey articles on models relating to quantum gravity, string theory, & non-commutative geometry, as well as Connes' approach to the standard model.
