Abstract:

Two related techniques have been proposed in the past for improving the performance of the sign detector, through higher-order data quantization. The fixed-threshold m-interval detector and the generalized sign detector using a conditional test are both nonparametric detectors which are fairly simple to implement. In this paper we compare the asymptotic and finite-sample, finite-signal performance characteristics of these two detectors, and point out their relative advantages and disadvantages. Author
