6PROTOTYPICAL RANDOM PROCESSES

6.1 INTRODUCTION

In this chapter, the prototypical, and important, random processes encountered in the physical sciences are defined. The Bernoulli, generalized Bernoulli, the random walk, Poisson, the random telegraph signal, shot noise, clustered, signalling, jitter, white noise, 1/f noise, birth–death, and orthogonal increment random processes are defined. The experiments, and notation for random processes, defined in the previous chapter are used. The simple as possible random process is the Bernoulli random process.
