Abstract:

A new class of more advanced filte s is examined for which the design criterion is the automatic decision process that occurs when the signals are detected or measured in noise. For example, in the detection of a radar signal the process might involve deciding whether or not a target is present, or it might involve measuring the signal in the sense o determining the p sition or vel city of a radar target. it is shown how a new class of filters which have optimal properties is conceived theoretically, and the approach is indicated to their design and construction for actual use.
