Suppose that fundamental characteristics of an economy are deterministic, but that economic agents believe nevertheless that equilibrium dynamics is affected by random factors apparently irrelevant to the fundamental characteristics (sunspots). This prophecy could be self-fulfilling, and one will get a sunspot equilibrium, if the resulting equilibrium dynamics is subject to a nontrivial stochastic process. A sunspot equilibrium is called a stationary sunspot equilibrium, if the equilibrium stochastic process is stationary.

We assume that the stochastic process is subject to a separable two-state Markov process with stationary transition matrices. A sample function of a random variable subject to this process generates a sequence of discontinuous points such that each discontinuous point is, of itself, a random variable. We will utilize a sequence of discontinuous points in the sample path of a sunspot variable in order to construct a sunspot equilibrium. , T := R+ . We denote the set of all function from T to {1, 2} by {1, 2}T .
