Ph.D. Level Courses
Advanced Topics in Detection and Estimation Theory
This course will treat selected advanced topics in estimation and detection theory. For an outline of specific topics that we plan to cover, see below.
InstructorsProf. Prof. Erik G. Larsson, ISY/Communication Systems, and Dr. <Unknown username: saif>, ISY/Communication Systems
RegistrationThe course is open to students enrolled in a Ph.D. program at Linkoping University/ISY. External participants upon request. If you have interest to participate, please register by sending an email to email@example.com, by March 1, 2011.
PrerequisitesGood knowledge of linear algebra and probability theory. General mathematical maturity. Knowledge of basic discrete-time detection/estimation theory (Chapter 2 in van Trees book, or equivalent) taught for example in our first detection/estimation course.
Tentative course outline
- Nonlinear estimation:
- Array signal processing
- Cramer-Rao bounds under constraints

- Conditional and unconditional Maximum-Likelihood (a.k.a. deterministic and stochastic ML) techniques, concentrated ML
- Techniques for asymptotic analysis of estimators
- Model order selection, detection of number of sources
- Asymptotic analysis of detection algorithms
- Basic spectral estimation
- Periodograms and weighted periodograms
- Basic parametric models and methods
- Direction-of-arrival and time-of-arrival estimation algorithms
- Source localization/positioning systems
- Detection of weak signals and signals with structure
