Detectors for discrete-time signals in non-Gaussian noise

  title={Detectors for discrete-time signals in non-Gaussian noise},
  author={James H. Miller and John B. Thomas},

A6struct-The structure and performance of a class of nonl inear detectors for discrete-time signals in additive white noise are investigated. The detectors considered consist of a zero-memory nonlinearity (ZNL) fol lowed by a linear filter whose output is compared with a threshold. That this class of detectors is a reasonable one to study is apparent from the fact that both the Neyman-Pearson opt imum and the locally opt imum (i.e., weak-signal opt imum) detectors for statistically independent… CONTINUE READING
