Abstract : A non-homogeneous Poisson Process is observed for a length of time T. It is assumed that the mean value function of the process is first increasing then decreasing inside the interval (0,T) with its peak value at time (t sub 0). Three methods are given for estimating (t sub 0). The given results have application in a problem of determining the azimuth of a target from radar impulse data. (Author)
