This book collects the Proceedings of a Congress held in Frascati (Rome) in the period July 1 -July 10, 1991, on the subject of harmonic analysis and discrete potential theory, and related topics. The Congress was made possible by the financial support of the Italian National Research Council ("Gruppo GNAFA"), the Ministry of University ("Gruppo Analisi Funzionale" of the University of Milano), the University of Rome "Tor Vergata", and was also patronized by the Centro "Vito Volterra" of the University of Rome "Tor Vergata". Financial support for publishing these Proceedings was provided by the University of Rome "Tor Vergata", and by a generous contribution of the Centro "Vito Volterra". I am happy of this opportunity to acknowledge the generous support of all these Institutions, and to express my gratitude, and that of all the participants. A number of distinguished mathematicians took part in the Congress. Here is the list of participants: M. Babillot, F. Choucroun, Th. Coulhon, L. Elie, F. Ledrappier, N. Th. Varopoulos (Paris); L.
