Speculations on the Intrinsic Significance of Random Interactions

  • M. Dresden


It is a special pleasure to dedicate this paper to Professor Elliott Montroll on the occasion of his 60th birthday. Few people have used statistical ideas and random concepts with as much success as Professor Montroll. It is appropriate to note that the speculations presented here — (suggesting the use of random considerations in particle physics) — owe a great deal to Professor Montroll’s activities in this field.
