The Spectral Analysis of Stationary Interval Functions

  • David R. Brillinger
Part of the Selected Works in Probability and Statistics book series (SWPS)


We consider stationary. additive. interval functions X(Δ). These are vector valued stochastic processes having real intervals Δ = (α, β] as domain, having finite dimensional distributions invariant under time translation and satisfying
