Abstract:

This thesis describes a study of the problem of antipodal signalling through a nonlinearly distorting channel. Maximin design criteria are presented, and general expressions are derived for the robust filter and its performance in terms of the eigenfunctions and eigenvalues of certain additive noise autocorrelations. In particular, the results of baseband detection in triangular-kernel noise, ideally bandlimited noise, and the Wiever noise processes are presented. Author
