On the Use of Asymptotics in Detection and Estimation

M. Garth, Yoram Bresler

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We illustrate the importance of a finite dimensionality assumption when using functions of asymptotic statistics. We also note that asymptotic distributions need to converge uniformly to facilitate algebraic manipulations. Finally, we point to subtleties in using detection statistics stemming from the central limit theorem and Tylor series without entering the large deviations regime.
