In science:

Keywords and phrases: Stable random fields, harmonisable fields, excursion sets, Euler characteristic, intrinsic volumes, geometry..
Excursion sets of stable random fields
For example, whereas in the Gaussian case many stationary processes have both a moving average representation (with respect to white noise) as well as a harmonisable representation, in the stable case moving average and harmonisable processes belong to quite distinct families.
Excursion sets of stable random fields
With this in hand, in Sections 4–6 we start with the new results, for sub-Gaussian, harmonisable, and concatenated-harmonisable random fields, deriving asymptotic formulas for the expected values of the Euler characteristics of their excursion sets.
Excursion sets of stable random fields
However, they do not represent a particularly rich class of stable fields. A much richer class of stable fields is given by the stationary, symmetric, α-stable (SαS ) harmonisable ones.
Excursion sets of stable random fields
This will enable us, as in the sub-Gaussian case, to use conditional Gaussian arguments to prove the following result, in which we establish the asymptotics of the expected Euler characteristic of the excursion sets of the real harmonisable stable fields.
Excursion sets of stable random fields
Let f be a harmonisable, SαS , random field as in (18) or (19), defined on the N -rectangle T of (2).
Excursion sets of stable random fields
Comparing, for example, (23) with its Gaussian counterpart (12) (take j = 0 there) we see that while the leading term in the Gaussian case comes from the volume term LN (M ), in the harmonisable stable case it comes from the two lowest Lipschitz-Killing curvatures, L0 (M ) and L1 (M ).
Excursion sets of stable random fields
Consider the representation (19) for harmonisable stable fields.
Excursion sets of stable random fields
The harmonisable case, however, is somewhat more complicated.
Excursion sets of stable random fields
Since these are, again, harmonisable fields with compactly supported control measures they are all continuous.
Excursion sets of stable random fields
We actually discovered them by looking for a class of examples which ‘interpolated’ between the sub-Gaussian ones, for which all the Lj appear in the asymptotic formula for the mean Euler characteristic of excursion sets, and the harmonisable ones, for which only L0 and L1 appear.
Excursion sets of stable random fields
This random field is quite different from that of the simple random wave generated by the first term of the harmonisable processes, and so the arguments there, based on examples as in Figure 1, are not going to carry over easily to the current situation.
Excursion sets of stable random fields
Let f be a concatenated-harmonisable, SαS random field as in (39), defined on the N -rectangle T of (2).
Excursion sets of stable random fields
The arguments that worked in the harmonisable case also work here to show that the conditionally Gaussian process satisfies all the conditions of Theorem 3.1.
Excursion sets of stable random fields
Let f be a harmonisable, or concatenated-harmonisable, SαS random field satisfying the conditions of Theorem 5.1, or Theorem 6.1, respectively.
