[time-nuts] Clock stability and its measures

I have been tasked to give a talk on clock stability and its measures
next thursday. Most of the stuff is pretty clear (and the rest can be
easily looked up in Rubiolas book, various app notes and papers).
But I would like to make sure I did not forget anything important.
The types of stability measures we have are:

* deviations
	* Allan deviation
	* modified Allan deviation
	* time deviation
	* Hadamard deviation

* noise spectrum
	* single sided power spectral density

* jitter
	* cycle-to-cycle jitter
	* period jitter
	* time interval error

Are there any other measures? Or anything important I should make sure
to mention?

Also, if someone has a presentation where I could steal some stuff from,
I would appreciate that as well.
