Dorothy Maharam Stone's (1917-2014) contributions to operators and measure algebras has had a profound influence on this area of research. Her career, which has spanned nearly half a century, includes 40 research publications, some of them as recent as 1987. A Ph.D. student of Anna Pell Wheeler at Bryn Mawr College, Stone has been an active force in mathematics research and various professional activities. This volume contains the proceedings of the Conference on Measure and Measurable Dynamics, held in honor of Stone at the University of Rochester in September 1987. The papers in this collection represent contributions from some of the top experts in this field. Stone's work is surveyed in a number of articles which highlight her foundational results concerning positive operators, the characterization of homo- geneous measure algebras, and disintegrations. In addition, there are research papers in ergodic theory, measure theory, descriptive set theory, and the dynamics of measurable maps. A number of the results in these papers are directly related to Stone's work.
