Extreme values and crossings for the chi^2-process and othe functions of multidimensional Gaussian processes, with reliability applications
(1980) In Advances in Applied Probability 12(3). p.746-774- Abstract
- Extreme values of non-linear functions of multivariate Gaussian processes are of considerable interest in engineering sciences dealing with the safety of structures. One then seeks the survival probability P{(X1(t),⋯ ,Xn(t))∈ S, all t∈ [0,T]}, where X(t)=(X1(t),⋯ ,Xn(t)) is a stationary, multivariate Gaussian load process, and S is a safe region. In general, the asymptotic survival probability for large T-values is the most interesting quantity. By considering the point process formed by the extreme points of the vector process X(t), and proving a general Poisson convergence theorem, we obtain the asymptotic survival probability for a large class of safe regions, including those defined by the level curves of any second- (or higher-)...

This makes it possible to give an asymptotic theory for the so-called Hasofer-Lind reliability index, $\beta =\text{inf}_{x\not\in S}\|x\|$, i.e. the smallest distance from the origin to an unsafe point.
