Abstract : The number of independeeent samples necessary to characterize the parameters of a Rayleigh-distributed process within arbitrary confidence limits is derived. Stationarity of the process is assumed, along with convergence of the Central Limit theorem with regard to the probability density function of the sample mean. Perfect measurement ability is also assumed. A graph of sample size for a range of confidence coefficients and error limits is presented. (Author)
