Paper Abstract

Firm analytical foundations are laid in this paper for quantifying the performance of a class of synthetic discriminant functions (SDFs) known as the equal correlation peak (ECP) filters. It is shown that while the conventional ECP filters are optimum for white input noise, they are not optimal for colored input noise. A modified ECP filter is proposed to optimize the performance for colored input noise. General expressions are also derived to quantify the loss of optimality of the conventional ECP filters.
