Parallel Statistical Binary Decision Fusion

Consider the situation where a fusion center, in cooperation with multiple sensors, namely, L sensors, wishes to determine which one of the two or m possible hypotheses is true. In this chapter, we derive a set of fixed-point type equations that the optimal sensor rules must satisfy for the parallel network decision systems. Based on the discretization of the optimality equations, we obtain a finitely convergent method for the computation of a set of optimal sensor rules. First, we show that ...
