Prel. scheduled hours:
Rec. self-study hours: 160

  Area of Education: Technology

Main field of studies: Electrical Engineering

  Advancement level (G1, G2, A): A

Aim:
After completed course the student should:
  • with adequate terminology, in a well-structured manner and logically coherent, be able to describe and conduct simpler calculations that relate to classical and Bayesian estimation and detection theory, specifically the Neyman-Pearson theorem, error probabilities, decision regions, maximum-likelihood, linear and nonlinear models, Fisher information, Cramer-Rao bound, circularly symmetric noise, noise whitening, MMSE and LMMSE, GLRT, model order selection, coherent and non-coherent detection, composite hypothesis testing and nuisance parameters and basis expansions of waveforms in continuous time
  • be able to describe, apply and implement in a conventional programming language, and show engineering understanding of, the theory and models used in the course


Prerequisites: (valid for students admitted to programmes within which the course is offered)
Linear algebra, probability theory, and a course similar to Signals, Information and Communications.

Note: Admission requirements for non-programme students usually also include admission requirements for the programme and threshhold requirements for progression within the programme, or corresponding.

Organisation:
Lectures, problem classes and computer laboratory work. Individual (inclass) oral examination of laboratory work.

Course contents:
Binary hypothesis tests, Neyman-Pearson theorem, error probability. M-ary detection problems. Bayes cost, minimum probability of error. Nuisance parameters. Classical estimation: Maximum-likelihood. Cramer-Rao bound, Slepian-Bang's formula, efficiency. Linear, vector-valued models with Gaussian noise. Non-linear models. Noise whitening, complex-valued data, Gaussian noise, circularly symmetric noise. Bayesian estimation: MMSE and LMMSE. Composite hypothesis testing: GLRT and Bayesian approach, model selection. Performance calculations, asymptotic properties of estimators. Applications to amplitude and phase estimation, frequency estimation, angle-of-arrival estimation, time-of-arrival estimation, source localization, coherent and non-coherent detection of waveforms.
