Linear transformations of locally stationary processes. (English) Zbl 0672.60043

A second order random process x(t) with zero mean is called a locally stationary process if its covariance function has the form \[ R_ x(t,s)=R_ x^{(1)}((s+t)/2)R_ x^{(2)}(s-t) \] where \(R_ x^{(1)}\geq 0\) and \(R_ x^{(2)}\) is some stationary covariance. Necessary and sufficient conditions are obtained under which a linear transformation of a harmonizable locally stationary process will also be a locally stationary one.
