Abstract : The functional properties of realizations of random processes are of considerable theoretical and practical interest. These properties are particularly important when processes which are well-defined mathematically are considered as models for natural random phenomena such as interfering noise sources or variations in system parameters. In such cases the properties of the individual realizations or sample functions of the processes must be compatible with their physical origin. Investigation of the sample function behavior of the modeling processes can often be valuable not only as an aid in choosing the appropriate mathematical model but also for indicating those areas in which the model may be inappropriate. The concern of this paper will not be with physical processes per se but with the functional properties of many common mathematical approximations to such processes. (Author)
