Abstract : The dissertation studies several issues involved with implementing adaptive array processors for signal detection and estimation. The basic structure which examined is the estimator-correlator processor. It establishes a fundamental connection between detection and estimation theory, and solves the detection problem for the generalized exponential class of signal and noise distributions. Keywords include: Adaptive signal processing, Estimator-correlator processing, Karhunen-Loeve expansion, Kernel estimation, Signal detection, Signal estimation.
