This paperback edition of a classic in the field of signal processing resurrects 32 lectures given by Van Trees (electrical engineering, George Mason U., Fairfax, VA) in a 1964 graduate course on modulation theory at MIT. While acknowledging that the shift from analog to digital modulation has rendered that section obsolete, the author notes that this review of classical techniques of statistical inference and characterization of radar, sonar, and other modern data processing systems has been relevant to generations of engineers. Includes worked examples; problems (which can be supplemented with ones requiring Matlab solutions); diagrams; a glossary; and a detailed outline of the course. The 30th hardcover printing was in 1996. Part IV is forthcoming. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
