#### Abstract

Complex-valued Gaussian processes are used in Bayesian frequency-domain system identification as prior models for regression. If each realization of such a process were an $H_\infty$ function with probability one, then the same model could be used for probabilistic robust control, allowing for robustly safe learning. We investigate sufficient conditions for a general complex-domain Gaussian process to have this property. For the special case of processes whose Hermitian covariance is stationary, we provide an explicit parameterization of the covariance structure in terms of a summable sequence of nonnegative numbers.
