David Middleton was a towering figure of 20th Century engineering and science and one of the founders of statistical communication theory. During the second World War, the young David Middleton, working with Van Fleck, devised the notion of the matched filter, which is the most basic method used for detecting signals in noise. Over the intervening six decades, the contributions of Middleton have become classics. This collection of essays by leading scientists, engineers and colleagues of David are in his honor and reflect the wide
This book focuses on classical noise modeling and its practical applications, covering such topics as statistical communication theory, non-stationary noise, molecular footprints, noise suppression, quantum error correction, and more.
