**Description**:

Written by a highly respected authority and researcher, this volume provides an introduction to signal-detection theory, a subject fundamental to the design of detectors of weak signals in the presence of random noise, and, in particular, to the design of optimal and near-optimal receivers of communication, radar, sonar and optical signals.
