New results on zeroes of stationary Gaussian functions


We consider (complex) Gaussian analytic functions on a horizontal strip, whose distribution is invariant with respect to horizontal shifts (i.e., "stationary"). Let N(T) be the number of zeroes in [0,T] x [a,b]. First, we present an extension of a result by Wiener, concerning the existence and characterization of the limit N(T)/T as T approaches infinity. Secondly, we characterize the growth of the variance of N(T). For the last part, we consider real stationary Gaussian functions on the real axis and discuss the "gap probability" (i.e., the probability that the function has no zeroes in [0,T]). This part is a joint work with Ohad Feldheim.
