Abstract:

A non-homogeneous Poisson Process is observed for a length of time T. It is assumed that the mean value function of the process is first increasing then decreasing inside the interval 0,T with its peak value at time t sub 0. Three methods are given for estimating t sub 0. The given results have application in a problem of determining the azimuth of a target from radar impulse data. Author
