Some Properties of Optimal Thresholds in Decentralized Detection

  title={Some Properties of Optimal Thresholds in Decentralized Detection},
  author={William W. Irving and John N. Tsitsiklis}
A decentralized Bayesian hypothesis testing problem is considered. It is analytically demonstrated that for the binary hypothesis problem, when there are two sensors with statistically independent Gaussian-distributed observations (conditioned on the true hypothesis), there is no loss in optimality in using the same decision rule at both sensors. Also, a multiple hypothesis problem is considered; some structure is analytically established for an optimal set of decision rules.
