On the occasion of his 60th birthday in October 2009, friends, collaborators, and admirers of Wolfgang Dahmen have organized this volume which touches on va- ous of his research interests. This volume will provide an easy to read excursion into many important topics in applied and computational mathematics. These include nonlinear and adaptive approximation, multivariate splines, subdivision schemes, multiscale and wavelet methods, numerical schemes for partial differential and boundary integral equations, learning theory, and high-dimensional integrals.
