24 December 2003 Information theoretic signal detection on the time-frequency plane
Author Affiliations +
A comprehensive theory for time-frequency based signal detection has been developed during the past decade. The time-frequency detectors proposed in literature are linear structures operating on the time-frequency representation of the signals and are equivalent to quadratic receivers that are defined in the time domain. In this paper, an information theoretic approach for signal detection on the time-frequency plane is introduced. In recent years, Renyi entropy has been proposed as an effective measure for quantifying signal complexity on the time-frequency plane and some important properties of this measure have been proven. In this paper, a new approach that uses the entropy functional as the test statistic for signal detection is developed. The minimum error detection algorithm is derived and the performance of this new signal detection method is demonstrated through examples.
