In this volume the full range of astrophysical maser
research is covered, with contributions from many of the
foremost researchers in the field. The topics include
masers in star-forming, circumstellar and extragalactic
environments, solar system masers, newly discovered masing
transitions, variability, proper-motion studies, and theory.
Since this was the first ever conference devoted exclusively
to astrophysical masers, these proceedings provide a
reference for this field which has not previously been
available. "Astrophysical Masers" will be useful both to
those who wish to study the physics of masers, and to those
who wish to better understand the astrophysically important
regions with which they are associated.
