For specific time t j , X(t j , ζ ) is a random variable For fixed t= t j and fixed ζ = ζ j , X(t j , ζ i ) is a number  r.v.: an outcome is mapped to a number X( ζ i ) , we use X( ζ ) to denote an r.v.  We often suppress ζ in X(t, ζ ) and X( ζ ) => X(t) or X Figure 5-1 A statistically identical set of binary waveform generators with typical outputs. 3 2 Figure 5-2 Typical sample functions of a random process and illustration of the relative-frequency interpretation of its joint pdf. 4 (a) Ensemble of sample function. (b) Superposition of the sample functions shown in (a).  Ensemble average • mean function: • variance function: • autocorrelation function: 5  Strict-sense stationary process: the pdf is time shift-invariant  any order of statistics of X(t) is time-invariant  Wide-sense stationary (WSS) processes:  the mean of X(t) is constant (does not depend on t)  t l t i d t d d 6  autocorrelation does not depend on t 3...
