Edgar Krahn was one of the two authors of the celebrated FaberKrahn inequality connected with the Rayleigh conjecture and who was one of the first to consider isoperimetric problems in the multidimensional case. This volume commenmorates his 100th birthday and surveys the major implicaions of his work in this century. These subjects include conformal mapping of surfaces, applied significance on higher order osculation, the Rayleigh conjecture and the FaberKrahn inequality thesis. Separately, Krahn's contributions to hydro- and aerodynamics, random walks and applications of probability are treated.
