    The problem of the optimum detection of signals in noise, when a possible signal can arise from more than one class of signal types, is considered from the point of view of decision theory. Specifically, optimization here consists of minimizing the average risk for preassigned costs appropriate to the possible correct and incorrect decisions, when only a single signal, of class View full abstract»

    The autocorrelation function and power spectrum of the phase-modulated portion of narrow-band gaussian noise is studied and specific computations are carried out for the case of a rectangular noise spectrum. Related results are given for the noise envelope. General asymptotic expressions for the spectra are obtained, together with experimental verification. View full abstract»

    It is shown that for any noisy channel without memory having only a finite number of received signals, the error in transmitting information at a rate H < C and using uniformly good codes of length n is bounded by an expression Fe^{-Bn(C-H)^2} where ...

    This bibliography is an attempt to collect a reasonably complete set of references pertaining primarily to fluctuation type noise, characteristic of shot and thermal noise, up to the year 1954. Of necessity these references touch upon such diverse fields as electrical engineering, aerodynamics, quantum mechanics, mathematical statistics, and pure mathematics. Although the material has been divided... View full abstract»

  • A note on the bounds on autocorrelation functions (Corresp.)

    Recently, bounds were shown to exist on the transient response of networks whose system functions were appropriately restricted. Since the impulse response and real part, of the system function are Fourier cosine transforms of each other and the autocorrelation function and power spectrum for stationary processes are similarly related, many of these results may be applied directly to the autocorre...
