Abstract : Consideration is given to several different classes of upper bounds on the tails of the power spectral density of a stationary random process. These bounds are based on the Chernoff Bound, Chebyshev-Bienayme Bounds and the Mellin-Transform Bound for random processes. Some optimization and comparisons of the bounds are given through two practical examples, the outputs of an angle-modulator and a square-law detector. For a given range of frequency and a given autocorrelation function, either of these bounds may be best. (Author)
