List of stochastic processes topics

List of stochastic processes topics

In the mathematics of probability, a stochastic process can be thought of as a random function. In practical applications, the domain over which the function is defined is a time interval ("time series") or a region of space ("random field").

Familiar examples of time series include stock market and exchange rate fluctuations, signals such as speech, audio and video; medical data such as a patient's EKG, EEG, blood pressure or temperature; and random movement such as Brownian motion or random walks.

Examples of random fields include static images, random topographies (landscapes), or composition variations of an inhomogeneous material.
