Mendrekar, V. (ed.) et al., Proceedings of the Norbert Wiener centenary congress, East Lansing, MI, USA, November 27–December 3, 1994. Providence, RI: American Mathematical Society. Proc. Symp. Appl. Math. 52, 163-194 (1997).
Summary: We illustrate the central role played by Wiener integrals in contemporary science. We also show how after Feynman’s introduction of his heuristc integrals as a basis of quantum theory, the influence of Wiener and Feynman path integrals became ever increasing. We give examples of cross fertilization of these approaches.
