Andreas Floer died on may possibly 15, 1991 an premature and tragic dying. His visions and far-reaching contributions have considerably motivated the advancements of arithmetic. His major pursuits founded at the fields of dynamical structures, symplectic geometry, Yang-Mills concept and occasional dimensional topology. influenced by way of the worldwide lifestyles challenge of periodic suggestions for Hamiltonian structures and ranging from principles of Conley, Gromov and Witten, he built his Floer homology, offering new, robust equipment which are utilized to difficulties inaccessible just a couple of years in the past. This quantity opens with a quick biography and 3 hitherto unpublished papers of Andreas Floer. It then offers a suite of invited contributions, and survey articles in addition to learn papers on his fields of curiosity, bearing testimony of the excessive esteem and appreciation this amazing mathematician loved between his colleagues. Authors comprise: A. Floer, V.I. Arnold, M. Atiyah, M. Audin, D.M. Austin, S.M. Bates, P.J. Braam, M. Chaperon, R.L. Cohen, G. Dell' Antonio, S.K. Donaldson, B. D'Onofrio, I. Ekeland, Y. Eliashberg, K.D. Ernst, R. Finthushel, A.B. Givental, H. Hofer, J.D.S. Jones, I. McAllister, D. McDuff, Y.-G. Oh, L. Polterovich, D.A. Salamon, G.B. Segal, R. Stern, C.H. Taubes, C. Viterbo, A.
