Professor Atiyah is one of the greatest living mathematicians and is well known throughout the mathematical world. He is a recipient of the Fields Medal, the mathematical equivalent of the Nobel Prize, and is still at the peak of his career. His huge number of published papers, focusing on the areas of algebraic geometry and topology, have here been collected into six volumes, divided thematically for easy reference by individuals interested in a particular subject. From 1977 onwards his interest moved in the direction of gauge theories and the interaction between geometry and physics.

"It is a welcome turn of events that Sir Michael has been talked into producing this edition of his collected works now, even though his mathematical career shows no signs of abating. We may expect that a complete edition of his mathematical opus will eventually require at least an extra volume. The advantage of the present arrangement is that we are provided not only with an extremely useful and timely compendium of the books and articles of this profound and influential thinker, but also with this own reflections on their origins, interrelations and place in the mathematical activity of the time. . . . Atiyah is one of the great mathematical teachers of our time. These papers are therefore not only of lasting importance, but are in addition, a true pleasure to read. The appearance of these volumes is thus an occasion for rejoicing." --American Scientist
