## Annals Of Applied Probability

##### (ISSN 1050-5164)

The Annals of Applied Probability publishes research papers of the highest quality reflecting the many facets of contemporary applied probability. Primary emphasis is placed on importance and originality.

The Annals of Applied Probability has two over-riding criteria for publishing of papers, other than formal correctness and coherence. These are:

(a) that the results in the paper should be genuinely applied or applicable; and

(b) that the paper should make a serious contribution to the mathematical theory of probability, or in some other sense carry a substantial level of probabilistic innovation, or be likely to stimulate such innovation.

Fundamentally, we seek a broad spectrum of papers which intellectually enriches our profession, and which illustrate the ways in which probabilistic thinking has a role in solving real applied problems, interpreted in a wide sense.
