Hsio-Fu Tuan is a Chinese mathematician who has made important contributions to the theories of both finite groups and Lie groups. He has also had a great influence on the development of algebra, and particularly group theory in China. The present volume consists of a collection of essays on various aspects of group theory written by some of his former students and colleagues in honour of his 80th birthday. The papers contain the main general results, as well as recent ones, on certain topics within this discipline. The chief editor, Zhe-Xian Wan, is a leading algebraist in China.Let w , a agt; u) be the natural map Wa = TV x W a agt; W0/TV = W, where JV is the maximal normal abelian subgroup of Wa ... of the following Conjecture (see [34]) IfW is an irreducible affine Weyl group with simply-laced Dynkin diagram (i.e. Wanbsp;...
