Five papers by distinguished American and European mathematicians describe some current trends in mathematics in the perspective of the recent past and in terms of expectations for the future. Among the subjects discussed are algebraic groups, quadratic forms, topological aspects of global analysis, variants of the index theorem, and partial differential equations.
