Part of the Springer Series in Statistics book series (SSS)


In this chapter the theory of maxima of mean square differentiable stationary normal processes will be developed under simple conditions—giving analogous results to those of Chapter 4. This will be approached using the properties of upcrossings developed in the previous chapter and will result in the limiting double exponential distribution for the maximum, with the appropriate scale and location normalization similar to that in Chapter 4.
