Abstract : This collection of technical reports and technical memoranda deals with the following topics: accurate efficient evaluation of cumulative or exceedance probability distributions directly from characteristic functions; determination of the performance of general second-order processors with nonstationary Gaussian inputs; the exact operating characteristics of a sum of an envelope-detected narrowband Gaussian process and sine wave; the resolution of the right-left ambiguity of a randomly moving line array; the operating characteristics of a cross-correlator with sample mean removal; statistical characterization of the under-ice profile; and the evaluation of densities and distributions from knowledge of high-order moments. Some of the material presented here is based heavily on earlier work by the author, which can be found in the following volumes in addition to the referenced technical reports: Performance of Detection and Communication Systems, NUSC Scientific and Engineering Studies, 1974; Spectral Estimation, NUSC Scientific and Engineering Studies, 1977; Coherence Estimation, NUSC Scientific and Engineering Studies, 1979; Receiver Performance Evaluation and Spectral Analysis, NUSC Scientific and Engineering Studies, 1981; and Signal Processing Studies, NUSC Scientific and Engineering Studies, 1983.
