Abstract:

The report considers the detection of events whose occurrence times and durations are random variables. In this context, two special cases are considered The continuous-action detectors that seek to respond at each time when an event is present The discrete-action detectors that seek to respond at only a single time during which each event is present. For both cases, the optimum detectors are specified in terms of recursion relations and examples of the numerical solutions of these relations are presented and compared. Author
