[time-nuts] Good references to noise related subjects?

Hi All,

My knowledge base on phase noise, low-noise design, noise figure, etc. is
based upon many bits and pieces that I have gathered from many sources (e.g
famous books like Motchenbacher, Pozar and the NIST Tech note 1337 as well
as the internet and appnotes). However, each discipline has their own take
on the subject (e.g RF guys - see it as noise figure and phase noise; time
guys - talk a lot about Allan dev, phase noise, different noise types;
electronic guys - talk about V^2/Hz, noise current, noise voltage etc.;
Digital guys - go for jitter and the eye pattern etc.)

I realize that all of this is actually the same thing from different view
points (the view point being the one that is most convenient to the
application). At the same time, I realize that a top view picture of my
knowledge base might look like Swiss cheese with a few holes in it. Could
anyone recommend some good books that provide a more comprehensive
background on these topics?
