## Abstract

We start with an analytic description of random homogeneous fields on
with the following properties:

**R**^{ n }. In the case*n*= 1 they are called, usually, random stationary processes. Let us consider a probability space Ω, i.e. a set equipped with a*σ*-algebra*F*of measurable subsets and a countably additive non-negative measure*μ*on*F*normalized by*μ*(Ω) = 1. We always assume the measure*μ*to be complete. An*n-dimensional dynamical system*is defined as a family of selfmaps$$T\left( x \right):\Omega \to \Omega , x \in {R^n},$$

- (1)
T(x + y) = T (x)T (y), x, y ∈

**R**^{n}, and T (0) = I; - (2)the map T(x) is measure preserving, i.e. for any x ∈
**R**^{n}and for any μ-measurable subset U ⊂ Ω, the set T(x)U is μ-measurable and$$\mu \left( {T\left( x \right)u} \right) = \mu \left( u \right);$$ - (3)the mapis measurable, where$$T:{R^n} \times \Omega \to \Omega , T:\left( {x,\omega } \right) \mapsto T\left( x \right)\omega ,$$
**R**^{n}× Ω is endowed with the measure dx ⨂μ,dx stands for the Lebesgue measure.
