White noise

White noise is noise with a constant spectral density independent of the frequency. The "snow" effect on an untuned television is a good example of white noise.

Strictly speaking, white noise cannot exist since an identical spectral density for all frequencies would lead to an infinite variance, measured by the area under the curve (and hence infinite energy). Therefore white noise only exists limited to a band of frequencies.
