Research Abstract 
1. On the problem for Laplace approximateion for large deviation principle first of all, we got a general framework of the precise estimate of the usual Laplace approximation order for nonsymmetric Markovian processes in the case that the Hessian of the free energy functional may be degenerate. Secondly, for the nonusual order problem of Laplace approximations for large deviation principle, the new type of limit theorem was obtained by mainly Prof. T. Chiyonobu in the case of I.I.d. random variables under suitable conditions motivated by the limit theorems of random matrices. 2. On the problems for the distributions of stochastic processes in random environments, firstly, mainly Profs. H. Tanaka and Y. Suzuki got the new type of limit theorem for onedimensional diffusion processes with one sided Brownian potential. Secondly a homogenization result was obtained for a random walk on some kind of fraktals with H. Takahashi related to some results for critical phenomena. On the other hand, on the problem of infinitely many balls reflecting mutually and with suitable potentials, mainly Prof. H. Tanemura constructed such infinitely many balls system through SDE method. 3. On the problems for self similar processes, we got some result for multidimensional infinitely divisible distributions and their projections with Prof. M. Maejima. We also introduced the operator semiselfsimilar processes and got some basic properties with Prof. M. Maejima and T. Saigo.
