Identify Regularly Sampled OrnsteinUhlenbeck Process as an Autoregressive Process 

Mathematica 10's improved support of computation with process slices allows you to straightfowardly use method of moments for multivariate process slices to establish equivalence in law between two processes.

Both autoregressive (AR) process and the OrnsteinUhlenbeck (OU) process are Gaussian processes, determined by their mean and covariance functions.
