We analyze fluctuations of random walks with generally distributed increments. Integral representations for key performance measures are obtained by extending an inversion theorem of Hewitt  for Laplace-Stieltjes transforms. Another important part of the anal- ysis involves the so-called harmonic measures associated to the distribution of the increment of the walk. It is also pointed out that such representations can be explicitly calculated, if one assumes a form of rational structure for the increment transform. Applications include, but are not restricted to, queueing and insurance risk problems.
