Paper Abstract

The paper presents a model for the detection of the noncoherent optical radiation, at the noise limit. Using the reprezentation on coherent states ofthe density matrix operators (p') and ofthe detection operators (iI), one can estimate: the detection probability (Qd ),the false-alarm probability (Qo), the signal-to-noise ratio (S/Z), as functions depending on the degrees of freedom of time oscillation modes (Mt) and space oscillation modes (Ms). Using Neyman-Pearson criterion, we build a validity algorhythm to validate the statistical hypotheses emerging from the analysis ofthe noncoherent optical field.
