Summary 
The main areas covered in this volume are vector bundles, parabolic bundles, abelian varieties, hilbert schemes, contact structures, index theory, Hodge theory, and geometric invariant theory. Professor Ramanan has made important contributions in all of these areas. Book Jacket 

This volume contains a collection of papers from the conference on Vector Bundles held at Miraflores de la sierra, Madrid, Spain on June 1620, 2008, which honored S. Ramanan on his 70th birthday
