Problem 8.51 Consider a random process X(t) defined by ( )tftX cπ2sin)( = where the frequency fc is a random variable uniformly distributed over the interval [0,W]. Show that X(t) is nonstationary. Hint: Examine specific sample functions of the random process X(t) for, say, the frequencies W/4, W/2, and W. Solution To be stationary to first order implies that the mean value of the process X(t) must be constant and independent of t. In this case, [ ] ( )[ ] ( ) ( ) ( ) Wt Wt Wt wt dwwt W tftX W W c π π π π π π 2 2cos1 2 2cos 2sin1 2sin)( 0 0 −= −= = = ∫ EE This mean value clearly depends on t, and thus the process X(t) is nonstationary.
