Celebrating the work of a renowned mathematician, it is our pleasure to present this volume containing the proceedings of the conference "Nonlinear Elliptic and Parabolic Problems: A Special Tribute to the Work of Herbert Amann", held in Zurich, June 28-30, 2004. Herbert Amann had a signi?cant and decisive impact in developing N- linear Analysis and one goal of this conference was to re?ect his broad scienti?c interest. It is our hope that this collection of papers gives the reader some idea of the subjects in which Herbert Amann had and still has a deep in?uence. Of particular importance are ?uid dynamics, reaction-di?usion systems, bifurcation theory,maximalregularity,evolutionequations,andthe theory offunction spaces. The organizers thank the following institutions for provided support for the conference: * Swiss National Foundation * Z.. urcher Hochschulstiftung * Z.. urcher Universit. atsverein * Mathematisch-naturwissenschaftliche Fakult. at (MNF). Finally,itisourpleasuretothankallcontributors,referees,andBirkh. auserVerlag, particularly T. Hemp?ing for their help and cooperation in making possible this volume.

From the reviews:
"This book is a collection of 32 articles and is meant as a special tribute to the work of H. Amann of the University Zuerich on the occasion of his retirement. It is an interesting mix at the boundary between pure and applied mathematics. ... This is an interesting collection, since it contains papers which one does not see if one is not a specialist and therefore gives a motivating fresh look on certain subjects." (M. Hofmann-Ostenhof, Monatshefte fur Mathematik, Vol. 152 (1), September, 2007)
