Summary The present volume is a collection of a dozen survey articles, dedicated to the memory of the famous Hungarian geometer, László Fejes Tóth, on the 99th anniversary of his birth. Each article reviews recent progress in an important field in intuitive, discrete, and convex geometry. The mathematical work and perspectives of all editors and most contributors of this volume were deeply influenced by László Fejes Tóth
Notes "In the summer of 2008, the editors of the present volume organized a well attended conference at the Rényi Institute of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences to commemorate the highly influential work and character of László Fejes Tóth (1915-2005), one of the best known Hungarian geometers of all time, who served as a director of the Institute for thirteen years."--Preface
