The author of this monograph took interest in the theory of excursions for random processes and its applications in early 1970s. The research on an adaptive radio communication system with a shortwave channel affected by multipath frequency-selective fading revealed the need to estimate efficiency loss resulting from finite fading rate. The problem of finding out, by way of periodic sounding of the communication channel, which of the two frequency subchannels available provides the best quality of transmission was naturally reduced to the estimation of the distribution law for time intervals preceding the first deterioration in the condition of the previously selected subchannel.

However, the literature dedicated to the theory of excursions ...
