This newly revised edition of a classic Artech House book provides you with a comprehensive and current understanding of signal detection and estimation. Featuring a wealth of new and expanded material, the second edition introduces the concepts of adaptive CFAR detection and distributed CA-CFAR detection. The book provides complete explanations of the mathematics you need to fully master the material, including probability theory, distributions, and random processes.
