Abstract : This report presents experimental results concerning probabilities and probability densities defined by the zerocrossing points of the envelope of a sine wave plus a Gaussian process. It is shown that these probabilities and probability densities are similar to the corresponding probabilities and probability densities defined by an associated Gaussian process. At present none of the probabilities or probability densities can be derived explicitly by analytical methods. The standard deviations associated with the probability densities are also presented. The first moments associated with the probability densities are compared with exact theoretical values. All other experimental results are compared with theoretical approximations. Probabilities and probability densities defined by the mathematical stationary points of the envelope of a sine wave plus a Gaussian process are also investigated. (Author)
