The Second Edition is an updated revision to the authors highly successful and widely used introduction to the principles and application of the statistical theory of signal detection. This book emphasizes those theories that have been found to be particularly useful in practice including principles applied to detection problems encountered in digital communications, radar, and sonar.

Key Features

Detection processing based upon the fast Fourier transform


Graduate students in signal detection at Electrical Engineering Departments. Professional engineers with a need to apply detection theory to real-world systems, such as radar and sonar applications. These include remote sensingscientists and Department of Defense employees and contractors working on radar and sonar applications and aircraft surveillance (e.g., the FAA).
