In 2003 the XIV International Congress on Mathematical Physics (ICMP) was held in Lisbon with more than 500 participants. Twelve plenary talks were given in various fields of Mathematical Physics : E Carlen <<On the relation between the Master equation and the Boltzmann Equation in Kinetic Theory>>; A Chenciner <<Symmetries and "simple" solutions of the classical n-body problem>>; M J Esteban <<Relativistic models in atomic and molecular physics>>; K Fredenhagen <<Locally covariant quantum field theory>> K Gawedzki <<Simple models of turbulent transport>>; I Krichever <<Algebraic versus Liouville integrability of the soliton systems>>; R V Moody <<Long-range order and diffraction in mathematical quasicrystals>>; S Smirnov <<Critical percolation and conformal invariance>>; J P Solovej <<The energy of charged matter>>; V Schomerus <<Strings through the microscope>>; C Villani <<Entropy production and convergence to equilibrium for the Boltzmann equation>>; D Voiculescu <<Aspects of free probability>>. The book collects as well carefully selected invited Session Talks in : Dynamical Systems, Integrable Systems and Random Matrix Theory, Condensed Matter Physics, Equilibrium Statistical Mechanics, Quantum Field Theory, Operator Algebras and Quantum Information, String and M Theory, Fluid Dynamics and Nonlinear PDE, General Relativity, Nonequilibrium Statistical Mechanics, Quantum Mechanics and Spectral Theory, Path Integrals and Stochastic Analysis.
