From the reviews:
"It is a very accessible introduction for the non expert to a few rapidly evolving areas of mathematics such as spectral analysis of graphs ... . this monograph seems to be the first publication providing a synthesis of a very vast mathematical literature in these areas by giving to the reader a concise and self contained panorama of existing results ... . this book is important to the quantum probability community and emphasizes well many new applications of quantum probability to other areas of mathematics."
