Course Description

This course will cover two fundamental problems: estimation and detection. For both, Bayesian and non Bayesian estimation will be discussed. Optimal estimation schemes, performance evaluation metrics, and performance bounds such as the Cramer-Rao lower bound will be presented. Filtering will be revisited in the context of linear estimation. Optimal detection schemes for simple hypotheses, uniformly most powerful test, Neyman-Pearson theorem, minimax, likelihood ratio test (LRT) and the generalized LRT will be discussed. Special focus on Gaussian models will be given in both estimation and detection.


ECE 353 (Intro. to Probability and Random Processes) or equivalent. You are expected to be familiar with concepts such as: random variables, mean, variance, probability density function, or cumulative distribution function.
