Abstract : The expectation of the solution process in a stochastic operator equation can be obtained from averaged equations only under very special circumstances. Conditions for validity are given and the significance and validity of the approximation in widely used hierarchy methods and the 'self-consistent field' approximation in non-equilibrium statistical mechanics is clarified.
