White, Black and Grey Noise(-s)

→ White Noise
In discrete time, white noise is a discrete signal whose samples are regarded as a sequence of serially uncorrelated random variables with zero mean and finite variance; a single realization of white noise is a random shock. [...] if each sample has a normal distribution with zero mean, the signal is said to be Gaussian white noise. The samples of a white noise signal may be sequential in time, or arranged along one or more spatial dimensions. [...]An infinite-bandwidth white noise signal is a purely theoretical construction. [...]
White noise draws its name from white light, although light that appears white generally does not have a flat spectral power density over the visible band.

The term white noise [...] is sometimes used in non technical contexts, in the metaphoric sense of „random talk without meaningful contents“.

→ Grey Noise
Grey noise is random noise whose frequency spectrum follows a psychoacoustic equal loudness curve (such as an inverted A-weighting curve).
The result is that grey noise contains all frequencies with equal loudness, as opposed to white noise, which contains all frequencies with equal energy. The difference between the two is the result of psychoacoustics, more specifically the fact that the human hearing is more sensitive to some frequencies than others.
Since equal-loudness curves depend not only on the individual but also on the volume at which the noise is played back, there is no one true grey noise. A mathematically simpler and clearly defined approximation of an equal-loudness noise is pink noise ...

→ Black Noise
- Silence
- Noise with a 1/fβ spectrum, where β > 2. This formula is used to model the frequency of natural disasters.
- Noise that has a frequency spectrum of predominantly zero power level over all frequencies except for a few narrow bands or spikes.
- Noise with a spectrum corresponding to the blackbody radiation (thermal noise). For temperatures higher than about 3×10−7 K the peak of the blackbody spectrum is above the upper limit to human Hearing range. In those situations, for the purposes of what is heard, black noise is well approximated as violet noise. At the same time, Hawking radiation of black holes may have a peak in hearing range, so the radiation of a typical stellar black hole with a mass equal to 6 solar masses will have a maximum at a frequency of 604.5 Hz, this noise is similar to green one. A formula is: f max ≈ 3627 × M./M Hz

Black noise is also called silent noise.
