SUMMARY

This volume consists of about half of the papers presented during a three-day seminar on stochastic processes held at Northwestern U- versity, Evanston. The seminar was the fourth 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 the seminar were B.W. ATKINSON, R.M. BLUMENTHAL, K. BURDZY, D. BURKHOLDER, M. CRANSTON, C. DOLEANS"'DADE, J.L. DOOB, N. FALKNER, P. FITZSIMMONS, J. GLOVER, F. KNIGHT, T. McCONNELL, J.B. MITRO, S. OREY, J. PITMAN, A.O. PITTENGER, Z. POP- STOJANOVIC, P. PROTTER, T. SALISBURY, M. SHARPE, C.T. SHIH, A. SZNITMAN, S.J. TAYLOR, J. WALSH, and R. WILLIAMS. We thank them and the other partiCipants for the lively seminar they created. The seminar was made possible through the partial support of the Air Force Office of Scientific Research via their Grant No. 82-0109 to Northwestern University. E
