The distributed detection problem is considered from an information-theoretic point of view. An entropy-based cost function is used for system optimization. This cost function maximizes the amount of information transfer between the input and the output. Distributed detection system topologies with and without a fusion center are considered, and an optimal fusion rule and optimal decision rules are derived
