Joseph Doob (1910 – 2004) was the leading American mathematician working in the area of probability theory during the 1930s and 1940s. During those two decades and the three decades that followed, he made major contributions to ergodic theory, potential theory, the foundations of probability theory, Markov process theory, martingale theory, and complex function theory. He has had a profound influence on the work of many others.

This volume contains 31 invited papers written by experts in probability, analysis, and allied areas. It reflects some of Doob’s influence and exhibits some of the exciting activity at the frontiers of probability and related fields today.

This volume has also been published, under a different cover, as Volume 50 of the Illinois Journal of Mathematics. To reach a wider audience, it is being made available for purchase at nominal cost as a standalone volume.
