Abstract

The papers presented in this session were partly about measurement problems and partly about the picture shown by the measures we have. Naturally, the two aspects are related. Our picture of the past is affected by which measures we choose to look at. To some extent, too, the actual problem of events makes a difference to which are the most appropriate measures to look at, and also to their reliability.
