    This report gives an introduction to the Casimir effect in quantum field theory and its applications. The interaction between the vacuum of a quantized field and an external boundary or a classical external field is investigated laying particular emphasis on Casimir's concept of measurable change in the vacuum energy. The various methods for evaluation and regularization of the Casimir energy are discussed in detail for specific field configurations. Recent applications of the Casimir effect in supercritical fields, QCD bag models and electromagnetic media are reviewed. © 1986.
