Description

Estimation theory is a product of need and technology. As a result, it is an integral part of many branches of science and engineering. To help readers differentiate among the rich collection of estimation methods and algorithms, this book describes in detail many of the important estimation methods and shows how they are interrelated. Written as a collection of lessons, this book introduces readers o the general field of estimation theory and includes abundant supplementary material.show more
