Review of the hardback: 'This will be essential reading for all those working in mathematical physics.' Extrait de L'Enseignement Mathematique Review of the hardback: 'As usual with Cambridge University Press the book is well produced and should certainly find a place in the libraries of any place where modern theoretical physics is pursued.'
