In other words, a random variable is defined as a function that maps each point in a sample space to a point on the real line. This allows us to describe outcome of experiment in term of numerical number rather than the event. The definition of random process involves generalisation of the concept of random variable (function with parameter ζ ) to include time as additional parameter. 2.2 Basic Concepts of Random Process If we take into account the time factor, we will obtain a function of time t and the experiment outcome ζ , ( 29 ζ , t X or simply X ( t ). This function X ( t ) is referred to as a random (or stochastic) process. We may view a stochastic process as a family of random variables indexed by the parameter t , { } I t t X ), , ( ε ζ . This family is called a random process . Figure 2.1: Random process (H Stark pp373, Fig8.1-1) In general, instead of time dependence, we may have space dependence, etc. The function is still called a random process....
