Self-similar random fields and rescaled random balls models

Abstract : We study generalized random fields which arise as rescaling limits of spatial configurations of uniformly scattered random balls as the mean radius of the balls tends to 0 or infinity. Assuming that the radius distribution has a power law behavior, we prove that the centered and renormalized random balls field admits a limit with strong spatial dependence. In particular, our approach provides a unified framework to obtain all self-similar, stationary and isotropic Gaussian fields. In addition to investigating stationarity and self-similarity properties, we give L^2-representations of the asymptotic generalized random fields viewed as continuous random linear functionals.
