The stochastic theory of spectral line shape as developed by one of the present authors is here extended to the problem of intermediate state interaction in a second order optical process. Depending on the stochastic nature of the interaction, the process may appear as a pure Raman process, or a luminescent process, or a mixed process. Simple but standard models are 1) the adiabatic random modulation and 2) the off-diagonal random modulation of the intermediate states. Limiting cases of slow and fast modulation are discussed in a general way. Some model calculations are made in order to see how a spectrum changes its nature from one limit to another.
