Abstract : During this contract work continued on research into the allied areas of nonparametric/robust methods and non-Gaussian models in communication theory. The former area was represented by work of Sullivan on robust processing of simultaneous data from an array of elements in which the standard analytical assumption of time independence is retained but dependence at an instant among the elements is allowed for and exploited, and by work of Keeler which treats real-time, fixed-memory-size detection with an m-dependent sequence of rank test statistics. J. H. Yang's invention of a two-channel phase-locked loop led to the inception of research on the quotient of two Gaussian processes - a non-central Cauchy process.
