From a old handwritten note without references cited, the first canonical process of a stochastic process $\Omega \times T \to S$ is defined as the identity mapping on $S^T$. I was wondering if there are concepts such as the second canonical process, the third canonical process, ...? Thanks and regards!

I would call it "the canonical random element representation", rather that the process (which is VERY often a "sequence"/"collection" of random elements) or "the first ..." since it does not seem there are "second canonical ..." you often meet in math. – Ilya Feb 20 '13 at 9:04
