Abstract
NASA's Advanced X-Ray Astrophysics Facility (AXAF), currently scheduled for launch in the early 1990's, will be a powerful tool to aid in our understanding of the Universe. This paper gives an overview of the AXAF's capability and serves as an introduction to the detailed presentations which follow in these proceedings.
