Point Processes

Part of the Springer Series in Optical Sciences book series (SSOS, volume 6)


When weak light is observed by a photodetector, a series of individual photoelectrons is emitted at random points of time. An observer who wishes to collect the full information carried by the detected electrons must record these random times. Useful information can be extracted from this very large set of times only by a statistical analysis in which smoothed statistical averages are utilized.
