The amount of scientific material collected here is very impressive and will certainly become a substantial source of reference for further research in this field. The contents ranges from the qualitative mathematical theory of hysteresis operators coupled with ordinary and partial differential equations with or without stochastic terms, over various ways to explain macroscopic hysteresis as a result of internal processes at the mesoscopic level, up to practical applications in modeling and simulating complex behavior of materials with hidden microstructure. The reader might perhaps miss a few words about mathematical consequences of the hysteresis energy balance and dissipation estimates in nonequilibrium evolution processes, but this has negligible influence on the overall excellent quality of the volume.

The articles of this volume will be reviewed individually. For Vol. I and II see Zbl 1117.34045 and and Zbl 1117.34046.
