About the Authors
  • Originally published in 1981, The Geometry of Random Fields remains an important text for its coverage and exposition of the theory of both smooth and non-smooth random fields; closed form expressions for various geometric characteristics of the excursion sets of smooth, stationary, Gaussian random fields over N-dimensional rectangles; descriptions of the local behavior of random fields in the neighborhoods of high maxima; and a treatment of the Markov property for Gaussian fields. The Geometry of Random Fields is essential reading for researchers in probability and statistics, with no prior knowledge of geometry required. Since the book was originally published it has become a standard reference in areas of physical oceanography, cosmology, and neuroimaging. It is written at a level accessible to nonspecialists, including advanced undergraduates and early graduate students.

    • Self-contained classic text on the theory of smooth and non-smooth random fields
    • Accessible to readers who are specialists in neither probability nor geometry
    • Covers both smooth and non-smooth fields, whereas other books on the subject tend to treat only one of the two scenarios
