@article{Wang2010OnTS, title={On the structure and representations of max-stable processes}, author={Yizao Wang and Stilian A. Stoev}, journal={Advances in Applied Probability}, year={2010}, volume={42}, pages={855 - 877} }

We develop classification results for max-stable processes, based on their spectral representations. The structure of max-linear isometries and minimal spectral representations play important roles. We propose a general classification strategy for measurable max-stable processes based on the notion of co-spectral functions. In particular, we discuss the spectrally continuous-discrete, the conservative-dissipative, and the positive-null decompositions. For stationary max-stable processes, the…
