Abstract

In this chapter, as already indicated by its title, an attempt is made to describe the action of radiation as a stochastic process, i. e. as a succession of random events. The process of refining the hit theory has led to the recognition of the fact that the initiation of a test effect is influenced not only by the hit number, but by a number of incidental events at the biological level.
