This volume contains the complete proceedings of the miniconference, "Probability and Analysis", held at the University of New South Wales, in Sydney, in July 1991.  The main topics of the conference were the use of probability in analysis, and geometric and operator theoretic aspects of Banach space theory.  The inspiration for the conference was the visits to Australia of Aleksander Pelczynski and Don Burkholder.  After some intiial indecision as to whether organising a conference was really a good idea, Werner, Ricker and Ian Doust put the wheels in motions.  Professors Pelczynski and Burkholder were joined by local invited speakers Gavin Brown, Garth Gaudry and Alan McIntosh.  Another twenty speakers gave contributed papers.  In total over fifty mathematicians from a wide variety of institutions took part in what was to be a very enjoyable meeting, spanning a wide range of analysis.

We would like to record our thanks to all the bodies who have directly and indirectly supported this meeting:

  • The Centre for Mathematics and it's Applications ANU
  • The Australian Mathematical Society.
  • The Australian Research Council
  • The University of New South Wales.

We should especially like to thank Mrs Marilyn Gray from the CMA for all of her usual efficient help behind the scenes, the secretarial staff at the University of NSW for cheerfully putting up with another conference, and all our colelagues who attended and who made the job or the organisers very easy.
