Discrete waveanalysis of continuous stochastic processes
(1973) In Stochastic Processes and their Applications 1(1). p.83105 Abstract
 he behaviour of a continuoustime stochastic process in the neighbourhood of zerocrossings and local maxima is compared with the behaviour of a discrete sampled version of the same process.For regular processes, with finite crossingrate or finite rate of local extremes, the behaviour of the sampled version approaches that of the continuous one as the sampling interval tends to zero. Especially the zerocrossing distance and the wavelength (i.e., the time from a local maximum to the next minimum) have asymptotically the same distributions in the discrete and the continuous case. Three numerical illustrations show that there is a good agreement even for rather big sampling intervals.For nonregular processes, with infinite crossingrate,... (More)

An example is given in which a small irregular disturbance is superposed over a regular process. The structure of the regular process is easily observable with a moderate sampling interval, but is completely hidden with a small interval. (Less)
