Chapter 10. Algorithms for Detection

10.1. Introduction

Chapter 9 described commonly used algorithms for parameter estimation. We now turn our attention to the problem of signal detection. These detection algorithms are used in many applications, including radar, sonar, communications, biomedical signal processing of EEGs, ECGs, etc., and image processing, to name just a few. In this chapter we follow the same format in describing the algorithms as in Chapter 9. As before, explicit MATLAB implementations in the form of MATLAB subprograms are provided for the user. A listing of the detection algorithms is given in Table 10.1.
