**Publisher**: Prentice Hall 1994**ISBN/ASIN**: 013808940X**ISBN-13**: 9780138089405**Number of pages**: 604

**Description**:

Written by a highly respected authority and researcher, this volume provides an introduction to signal-detection theory, a subject fundamental to the design of detectors of weak signals in the presence of random noise, and, in particular, to the design of optimal and near-optimal receivers of communication, radar, sonar and optical signals.
