More than 4 weeks availability


This collaborative work presents the results of over twenty years of pioneering research by Professor Simon Haykin and his colleagues, dealing with the use of adaptive radar signal processing to account for the nonstationary nature of the environment. These results have profound implications for defense-related signal processing and remote sensing. References are provided in each chapter guiding the reader to the original research on which this book is based.
