On Defining White Noise
MetadataShow full item record
The mathematical background necessary to rigorously define white noise is detailed. It is shown that it is necessary to accept an arbitrarily small correlation time, and a flat power spectral density approximation over a finite, but arbitrarily large, frequency range, to adequately define a white noise random process consistent with the Wiener-Khintchine relationships. Dichotomous random processes are used to illustrate appropriate principles and problems. The results are generalized to Gaussian white noise.
