  • describes the field of parameter estimation based on time series data.
  • provides a summary of principal approaches as well as a “roadmap” to use in the selection of an estimator.
  • extends many of the results for real data/real parameters to complex data/complex parameters.
  • summarizes as examples many of the important estimators used in practice.
  • illustrates how a digital computer can be used to assess performance of an estimator.
  • emphasizes a linear model to allow an optimal estimator to be found by inspection of a data model.

A unified presentation of parameter estimation for those involved in the design and implementation of statistical signal processing algorithms. KEY TOPICS: Covers important approaches to obtaining an optimal estimator and analyzing its performance; and includes numerous examples as well as applications to real- world problems. MARKETS: For practicing engineers and scientists who design and analyze signal processing systems, i.e., to extract information from noisy signals — radar engineer, sonar engineer, geophysicist, oceanographer, biomedical engineer, communications engineer, economist, statistician, physicist, etc.
