Some sampling properties of empirical characteristic functions viewed as harmonizable stochastic processes Academic Article uri icon


  • It is shown that the empirical characteristic function (ecf) of any random variable X is a harmonizable process whose spectral measure can be expressed in terms of the distribution function of X. This result and some of its consequences are used to give algorithms for finding the optimal sample times and sampling of the ecf. 1987.
