A Collection of Mathematical Articles in His Memory
Donald Burkholder, Editor
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.
