This is an expository paper. It outlines several results on Ornstein-Uhlenbeck (OU) fields and stochastic intermittency (SI) fields. This is done by discussing spatial-temporal models \(X=\{X_{t}(\sigma )\}\) and \(Y=\{Y_{t}(\sigma )\}\) on a set \(\mathcal{S}\) of sites \(\sigma ,\) respectively. \(X\) is defined by \(X_{t}(\sigma )=\int_{-\infty }^{t}\int_{ \mathcal{S}}f_{t}(\rho ,s;\sigma )Z(d\rho \times d\sigma ),\) where \(Z\) denotes a Lévy basis and the integrand \(f_{t}\) is a deterministic function of special form. The SI fields are of multiplicative type, that is \(Y_{t}(\sigma )=\exp (X_{t}(\sigma )).\) Applications of OU fields concern, among other things, dynamics of financial markets and the modelling of intensity processes for use in dynamical spatial processes of Cox type. As for SI fields, the authors are mainly interested in modelling \(n\)-point correlations and \(n\)-point correlators defined in terms of the Laplace transforms of \(X_{t}(\sigma ).\) They sketch briefly applications such as the stochastic behaviour of turbulent energy dissipation fields viewed as continuous analogues of multiplicative cascade processes.
