Detection and Estimation Theory

For courses in Estimation and Detection Theory offered in departments of Electrical Engineering. This is the first student-friendly textbook to comprehensively address the topics of both detection and estimation - with a thorough discussion of the underlying theory as well as the practical applications. By addressing detection and estimation theory in the same volume, the authors encourage a greater appreciation of the strong coupling and often blurring of these fields of study. In order to modernize classical topics, the text focuses on discrete signal processing with continuous signal presentations included to demonstrate uniformity and consistency of the results.
