The Institute was sponsored by NATO. Co-sponsors were: A.C.E.C. (Belgium), Agfa-Gevaert (Belgium), lAir Li uide BeIge (Belgium), Be1gonucleaire (Belgium), Bell Telephone Mfg. Co. (Belgium), Boelwerf (Belgium), Generale BankmaatschappiJ (Belgium), I.B.M. (Belgium), Kredietbank (Belgium), National Science Foundation (U.S.A.), Siemens (Belgium). A total of 100 lecturers and partici pants attended the Institute. The development of path (or functional) integrals in relation to problems of stochastic nature dates back to the early 20s.

At that time, Wiener succeeded in obtaining the fundamental solution of the diffusion e uation using Einsteins joint probability of finding a Brownian particle in a succession of space intervals during a corresponding succession of time intervals. Dirac in the early 30s sowed the seeds of the path integral formulation of uantum mecha nics. However, the major and decisive step in this direction was taken with Feynmans works in uantum and statistical physics, and quantum electrodynamicso The applications now extend to areas such as continuous mechanics, and recently functional integration methods have been employed by Edwards for the study of polymerized matter.
