Abstract. As the main result in Ge's paper, Ge announced that he proved a formula on the distribution of Morlet wavelet power spectrum of continuous-time Gaussian white noise in a rigorous statistical framework. In this paper, we will show that Ge's formula is wrong and each step of Ge's proof is wrong. Moreover, we give and prove a correct formula in a rigorous statistical framework.
