Modelling and Detection
This review paper first presents some general concepts about the meaning of modelling a physical process; attention is then restricted to the modelling of the radar/sonar target as seen by the receiver, for which some fluctuation models are presented. Detection performance curves are presented and discussed. The paper concludes with an example of application of a detection model to a specific communication problem.
