Multirate Statistical Signal Processing introduces a statistical theory for extracting information from related signals with different sampling rates. This new theory generalizes the conventional deterministic theory of multirate systems beyond many of its constraints. Further, it allows for the formulation and solution of new problems: spectrum estimation, time-delay estimation and sensor fusion in the realm of multirate signal processing. This self-contained book presents background material, potential applications and leading-edge research.
