To describe the theoretical foundation of detection and estimation theory with application to digital communication systems.

Discrete representation of deterministic and random signals.

Detection theory
Statistic model for detection. MAP criterion. Detection in the presence of additive white Gaussian noise. Sufficient statistics. Matched filter. Detection in the presence of additive Gaussian colored noise: reversibility theorem. Detection in the presence of random parameters.

Estimation theory
Statistic model for estimation. Estimation of deterministic parameters: ML criterion. Estimation of stochastic parameters: Bayes criterion. Cramer-Rao inequality. Minimum mean square linear estimation. Wiener filter. Prediction. Kalman filter.

Examination methods
Written and oral exam.
