STATIONARY AND ERGODIC RANDOM PROCESSES Given the random process y ( z , t ) we assume that the expected value of the random process is zero, however this is not always the case. If the expected value equals some constant x we can adjust the random process such that the expected value is indeed zero: o ( y ( z , t ) = x t , z ) - x . o Again we note that for the stationary ergodic random process the time statistics and event statistics are equal. We write the autocorrelation R () t : 1 T t t { ( y + t , z ) } = R ) = li m yty ( t + t ) dt (1) R = E , z t T ﬁ¥ T 0 i i CORRELATION PROPERTIES 1. R (0) = variance = s 2 = (RMS) 2 0 2.

SPECTRUM Given a random process that is stationary and ergodic, with an expected value of zero and autocorrelation R t , the power spectral density, or spectrum, of the random process is defined as the Fourier transform of the autocorrelation. ¥ w t - i wt d S = R e t (4) Conversely, the autocorrelation, R t , is the inverse FT of the spectrum 1 ¥ i wt t w R = S ed w (5) 2 p Properties of the Spectrum S w of y ( z , t ) : 1.

This one-sided spectrum is convenient and used traditionally, but is not strictly correct. The one sided spectrum is a representation of the entire spectrum only in the positive 1 frequency domain.
