Four simulation experiments have been carried out to compare the statistics of threshold detection of a complex sinusoid in additive noise using the Burg maximum entropy method (MEM) and the discrete Fourier transform (DFT) technique. The results indicate that, in the presence of additive white noise, the DFT consistently provides a higher signal detection probability PDand a more accurate estimate of signal frequency than the MEM. In the presence of colored noise, the DFT provides a higher PDwhen signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) is high, or when signal detection is carried out in the low false-alarm probability PFAregion. Only in the very restricted case of low SNR together with a high PFAand the signal far away from the center of the noise band does the MEM provide a higher PDthan the DFT.
