# Creation of a regular gridΒΆ

In this example we will demonstrate how to create a regular grid. Note that a regular grid is a particular mesh of .

Here we will assume it represents the time as it is often the case, but it can represent any physical quantity.

A regular time grid is a regular discretization of the interval into points, noted .

The time grid can be defined using where is the number of points in the time grid. the time step between two consecutive instants and . Then, and .

Consider a multivariate stochastic process of dimension , where , and is interpreted as a time stamp. Then the mesh associated to the process is a (regular) time grid.
