SUMMARY

This volume consists of about half of the papers presented during a three-day seminar on stochastic processes held at Northwestern University in March 1982. This was the second of such yearly seminars aimed at bringing together a small group of researchers to discuss their current work in an informal atmosphere. The invited participants in this year's seminar were B. ATKINSON, R. BASS, K. BICHTELER, D. BURKHOLDER, K.L. CHUNG, J.L. DOOB, C. DOLEANS-DADE, H. FOLLMER, R.K. GETOOR, J. GLOVER, J. MITRO, D. MONRAD, E. PERKINS, J. PITMAN, Z. POP-STOJANOVIC, M.J. SHARPE, and J. WALSH. We thank them and the other participants for the lively atmosphere of the seminar. As mentioned above, the present volume is only a fragment of the work discussed at the seminar, the other work having been committed to other publications. The seminar was made possible through the enlightened support of the Air Force Office of Scientific Research, Grant No. 80-0252A. We are grateful to them as well as the publisher, Birkhauser, Boston, for their support and encouragement.

Introduction The purpose of this paper is to give an intrinsic characterization of optional (i.e., stopping) times for the general germ Markov process, which includes the general right process as a special case. We proceed from the general to the specific
