List of stochastic processes topics
In the mathematics of probability, a stochastic process is a random function. In practical applications, the domain over which the function is defined is a time interval (time series) or a region of space (random field).
Familiar examples of time series include stock market and exchange rate fluctuations, signals such as speech, audio and video; medical data such as a patient's EKG, EEG, blood pressure or temperature; and random movement such as Brownian motion or random walks.
Examples of random fields include static images, random topographies (landscapes), or composition variations of an inhomogeneous material.

- Point processes: random arrangements of points in a space . They can be modelled as stochastic processes where the domain is a sufficiently large family of subsets of S, ordered by inclusion; the range is the set of natural numbers; and, if A is a subset of B, ƒ(A) ≤ ƒ(B) with probability 1.
