Summary Professor Yoseph (Joe) Imry, an early initiator of mesoscopic physics, has been among the leaders in this field for several decades. This book contains articles by leading (theoretical and experimental) scientists working in nanoscience and in related fields. Most of the contributions, consisting both reviews of the state of the art and new results, summarize invited talks given at two conferences held in honor of Imry's 70th birthday : the 101st Statistical Mechanics Conference (Rutgers University, May 10-12, 2009), and Perspectives of Mesoscopic Physics (Weizmann Institute of Science, May 31-June 1, 2009). This book covers a broad range of active research in nanoscience, including topics like quantum interference, decoherence, electron correlations, nano superconductors and nano magnets, nonequilibrium and glassy behavior
