Hello

I just read the following two equations and I need some help in understanding them.

1. cov {ηr(x, t), ηr(u, τ)} = Cηr (x − u)δ(t − τ)

The first one might be a covariance of the two function nr(x,t) and nr(u,τ). I do not get the C (big c) on the right side of the equation.

2. E{νr(x, t)sr(u, t)} = E{ηr(x, t)sr(u, t − 1)} = 0

The number two must refer to the Expected value or mean value . So I think that the author want to express the expected value for two variables. If that is correct then why there is no comma between vr(x,t) and sr(u,t).

What might be the meaning of this equation? Two different equations that equal zero.

I would like to thank you in advance for your help.

Best Regards

Alex
