Abstract : The research was concerned with the detection estimation and localization of signals in noise and with coding of signals for efficient transmissions and error control. Specific topics considered include the detection and estimation of a set of harmonically related signals in noise, the detection, estimation and encoding of spatially and temporally modulated signals (including the computation of channel capacity for spatial-temporal channels), the joint optimum estimation and detection of signals in noise, the localization of a parameter to a minimum size region with preset containment probability, the algebraic decoding of signals using reliability information, a class of nonlinear codes more efficient than any known linear codes, algorithms for source coding preserving the alphabetic property of the source and bounds on the probability of overflow of finite size buffers.
