Paper Abstract

This paper shows that increasing SNR is not necessarily sufficient to improve ROC performance, that is, increase the probability of detection for a given false alarm probability. The general optimal detector is derived with no assumptions on the stationarity of the input noise process or the form of the input signal model.
