 Publisher's Summary
 This book starts with an introduction by V. Pasquier on the usefulness of noncommutative geometry, especially in the condensed matter context of the Hall effect. This theme is further developed by A. Polychronakos, who together with L. Susskind introduced the concept of noncommutative fluids. JeanMichel Maillet compares the experimental results on one dimensional magnetic chains to the theoretical predictions based on the algebraic Bethe Ansatz and related to quantum group symmetries that he actively developed with many collaborators. On the high energy side of noncommutative geometry the book includes two complementary reviews. A. Connes describes the striking progress recently made in gathering all the interactions and fields of the standard model into a noncommutative geometry on a simple internal space, while V. Rivasseau describes in a large review the very recent technique of renormalization of quantum field theories on noncommutative spacetime, which lead to the surprising discovery of their improved shortdistance behavior.
