Abstract

Acta Applicandae Mathematicae 6 (1986) 213 Book Reviews J. L. Doob: Classical Potential Theory and its Probabilistic Counterpart, Springer- Verlag, Berlin, Heidelberg, New York, 1984. This book has previously been reviewed by P. A. Meyer in Bull. A.M.S. 12 (1985) 177-181 and includes, in addition, much about potential theory which I can hardly hope to add to. As P. A.
