Overview

Chaotic dynamics of sea clutter boasts important applications in a number of fields, including weather radar systems, which are intensely studied at major universities. This book presents a detailed account of chaotic dynamics of sea clutter, using real-life sea clutter data rather than simulated data, and drawing on eight years of research by one of the most highly regarded researchers in this area.

Booknews
Radar backscattering from an ocean surface, commonly called sea clutter, has been traditionally viewed as the sample function of a stochastic process. Expanding on a paper published in in December 1997, the authors (McMaster University) offer experimental results that demonstrate that sea clutter is in reality chaotic. The book also presents the elements of a rigorous procedure for determining whether an experimental time series is chaotic or not, as well as an overview of the pertinent aspects of chaos theory. Intended for radar engineers and scientists working on the characterization of sea clutter, and researchers probing into the chaotic nature of experimental time series. Annotation c.
