Variable and Non-spherical Stellar Winds in Luminous Hot Stars  
The observational evidence and the theoretical work presented at this colloquium demonstrate that significant non-spherical effects and time variations are very common phenomena in the winds from hot stars. Hence, the assumptions of spherical symmetry and stationarity, while highly successful for the theory of stellar structure, appear to be inadequate for describing and understanding the winds of hot stars. This conclusion has significant consequences for the appearance and evolution of hot
