# Create an event based on a processΒΆ

This example gives elements to create an event based on a multivariate stochastic process. Let be a stochastic process of dimension , where is discretized on the mesh . We suppose that contains vertices.

We define the event as:

where is a domain of .

A particular domain is the cartesian product of type:

In that case, the library defines by its both extreme points : and .

In the general case, is a *Domain* object that is able to check if it contains a given point in .

The library creates an *Event* object from the process and the domain . Then, it is possible to get a realization of the event , which is scalar if is a realization of on .
