Barcelona Seminar on Stochastic Analysis
During the of Fall 1991, The Centre de Recerca Matematica, a research institute sponsored by the Institut d'Estudis Catalans, devoted a quarter to the study of stochastic analysis. Prominent workers in this field visited the Center from all over the world for periods ranging from a few days to several weeks. To take advantage of the presence in Barcelona of so many special ists in stochastic analysis, we organized a workshop on the subject in Sant Feliu de Guixols (Girona) that provided an opportunity for them to ex change information and ideas about their current work. Topics discussed included: Analysis on the Wiener space, Anticipating Stochastic Calculus and its Applications, Correlation Inequalities, Stochastic Flows, Reflected Semimartingales, and others. This volume contains a refereed selection of contributions from some of the participants in this workshop. We are deeply indebted to the authors of the articles for these exposi tions of their valuable research contributions. We also would like to thank all the referees for their helpful advice in making the volume a reflection of the dynamic interchange that characterized the workshop. The success of the Seminar was due essentially to the enthusiasm and stimulating discus sions of all the participants in an informal and pleasant atmosphere. To all of them our warm gratitude.
