Summary 
Mathematics has a certain mystique, for it is pure and ex act, yet demands remarkable creativity. This reputation is reinforced by its characteristic abstraction and its own in dividual language, which often disguise its origins in and connections with the physical world. Publishing mathematics, therefore, requires special effort and talent. Heinz Gotze, who has dedicated his life to scientific pu blishing, took up this challenge with his typical enthusi asm. This Festschrift celebrates his invaluable contribu tions to the mathematical community, many of whose leading members he counts among his personal friends. The articles, written by mathematicians from around the world and coming from diverse fields, portray the important role of mathematics in our culture. Here, the reflections of important mathematicians, often focused on the history of mathematics, are collected, in recognition of Heinz Gotze's lifelong support of mathematics.
