### Abstract

Detection problems arise in a number of engineering applications such as radar, communications, surveillance, and image analysis. In the basic setting of the problem, the goal is to detect the presence or absence of a signal in noise. This chapter will provide the mathematical and statistical foundations for solving such problems.
