Hello Forum,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am not clear on what higher order statistics actually mean. I know that if a process is Gaussian, it is fully described by its mean and variance. The higher order statistics are zero or redundant.....IF the process is not Gaussian, then the HOS are useful....

1) How do we determine if a process is Gaussian first of all?

2) What type of operations do we mean with higher order statistics?

thanks
