The definition and significance of oscillator stability continually arise in communication and radar system design. This paper relates the conventional definition of oscillator stability to the more fundamental frequency error process of the oscillator through an integral equation. Both short-and long-term stability are encompassed by the definition. Since in general the integral equation cannot be solved, certain frequency error processes are postulated, and the stability is derived therefrom.
