published in New Horizons in Time Domain Astronomy, 285, pp. 299-300 (2012)

Abstract: Results of simulating false-alarm probabilities in irregularly sampled time series are presented. Relations to well-known expressions and earlier-used criteria are shown and tested for applicability. The use of an extreme-values distribution in this context is investigated.
