The course provides fundamentals in three main domains of the statistical signal processing: 1) estimation theory, 2) detection theory, 3) optimal and adaptive filtering. The statistical signal processing is a core theory with many applications ranging from digital communications, audio and video processing, radar and radio navigation, measurement and experiment evaluation, etc.

Study targets:

The course provides theoretical foundations in the three main areas of stochatical signal processing and offers a unifying view of seemingly different approaches.


Parameter estimates, MVU estimator, Cramer-Rao bound, composite hypotheses, estimator properties. Sufficient statistics. Maximum plausible estimate, EM algorithm. Bayesian estimators (MMSE, MAP). Detection. Hypothesis testing Parametric methods, types and relations. Using the least squares method to design filters. Optimal filtration - Wiener and Kalman filter. Spectral analysis and adptive filtration.
