Abstract : In a previous report a statistical theory of radar detection was presented in outline form. The mathematical details were omitted. In order that the main ideas and results might be made available as soon as possible. This report contains the mathematics that led to the results presented in Ref. 28. In addition, several subjects are briefly discussed that were not covered in Ref. 28. These are collapsing loss, antenna beam shape loss, the effect of signal injection, limiting loss, and moving target indication.
