1 Random (Stochastic) Process Random signals (voice, T.V., Digital computer data, electrical noise) have two properties: Function of time (defined in some interval) Random (impossible to describe exactly the waveforms) An indexed set of functions of some parameter ( t,d..) that has some statistical properties

2 Note that to qualify as a R.P., x could be a function of any other variable (distance for example) and a function of more than one variable.

3 Example: Consider the voltage waveforms emitted from a noise source One possible waveform is x(t,E i ) is a sample function of the sample space All possible sample functions is called the ensemble and defines the random process x(t) that describes the noise source A random process maps events into functions of the parameter ‘t’ . (R.V. maps events into constants)

4 But the noise voltage is function of time. Thus the R.V. ‘x’ is a function of time and can be expressed as x (t) A R.V that is a function of time is called a random process (or stochastic process) To continue with the example of the random process x(t), we need to record noise voltage for each ‘t’ in order to specify the random process. We obtain many waveforms, ( called sample function ). Sample function amplitudes at some instant t=t 1 are x(t 1 ) in various trials The collection of all possible waveforms is called ensemble (sample space) of the random process

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
