Editorial Reviews


"...an integrated presentation of classical and statistical array processing...develops synthesis techniques..." (SciTech Book News, Vol. 26, No. 2, June 2002)

From the Back Cover

"Once again, Harry Van Trees has written the definitive textbook and research reference."
-Norman L. Owsley
Office of Naval Research, IPA University of Rhode Island

A comprehensive treatment of optimum array processing

Array processing plays an important role in many diverse application areas, including radar, sonar, communications, seismology, radio astronomy, tomography, and cellular communications.

Optimum Array Processing gives an integrated presentation of classical and statistical array processing. Classical analysis and synthesis techniques for linear and planar arrays are developed. A statistical characterization of space-time random processes is provided. Many different aspects of optimum array processing are covered, including waveform estimation, adaptive beamforming, parameter estimation, and signal detection. Both plane-wave signals and spatially spread signals are studied, and all results are developed in a pedagogically sound manner.

This book provides a fundamental understanding of array processing that is ample preparation for research or implementation of actual array processing systems. It provides a comprehensive synthesis of the array processing literature and includes more than 2,000 references. Readers will find an extensive variety of models and criteria for study and comparison, realistic examples and practical applications of optimum algorithms, challenging problems that expand the book's material, and detailed derivations of important results. A supplemental Web site is available that contains MATLAB(r) scripts for most of the figures used in the book so readers can explore diverse scenarios.

The book uses results from Parts I and III of Detection, Estimation, and Modulation Theory. These two books have been reprinted in paperback for availability.

For students in signal processing or professionals looking for thorough understanding of array processing theory, Optimum Array Processing provides authoritative, comprehensive coverage in the same clear manner as the earlier parts of Detection, Estimation, and Modulation Theory.

Format: Hardcover
This book is the fourth book in Dr van Trees' series "Detection, Estimation, and Modulation Theory". It relies extensively on volumes I and III (but not volume II), and the reader of volume IV will want to have volumes I and III available.
As for the book itself, it is BIG. For some reason, it gives the impression of being somewhat inflated. I can't pinpoint the exact reason for this, but I suspect it must have something to do with the relation between font size and paper size. The publishers claim there are 2000 references in the book. This may very well be true, as the bibliographies after each chapter generally are 10 to 15 pages long. Unfortunately, there is no overall bibliography in the book. While such a bibliography would inflate the book by somewhere between 100 and 150 pages (it is ~1500 pages in the current version), I think it would be worth adding it.
What the contents is concerned, it is a definite academic angle on the material and the presentation. The practitioner may want to pay attention to the fact that the book title is "_Optimum_ Array processing", not "_Practical_ Array Processing". The "Multiple Signal Classification" (MUSIC) method and "Estimation of Signal Parameters via Rotational Invariant Techniques" (ESPRIT) algorithm are discussed extensively in the later chapters, but some details that turn out to be cruical when putting these methods to practical use appear to be missing in this book. The very motivation for developing the ESPRIT algorithm is that the MUSIC algorithm is extremely sensitive to array calibration data, i.e. that the array calibration matrix must be known with very high presicion.

It was a great pleasure for me to discover this book after having tried to read several other books on the subject. The explanations and mathematics are crystal clear and anyone but the most indolent should have a great pleasure in the detail and effort put behind this book. As one example, I have looked for an explanation of the theory behind Dolph-Chebychev windows. This was clearly and simple described, so the reader has a chance to understand (and remember!) the material, instead of just jotting down many equations of various unknown origin. A great many array geometries, methods and techniques are considered and explained in detail. All in all, a lot of information I only wish, I had available several years ago.

For the serious reader I have found no comparable book on the subject.

For the beginnner, "adaptive signal processing" by Widrow may be more appropriate.

I have a unique perspective on this book because I was a student in Dr VanTree's classes at George Mason prior to the book's official publication. I'm biased and consider myself privileged to be so. Having taken classes from other notable researchers in the subject over the years, the essential feature of this book is that it starts at the BEGINNING. One is grounded in classical shading techniques prior to moving on to optimal and then adaptive techniques. One develops a habit of plotting the pattern and looking at the white noise gain. The strength of the book is the way the material is organized. This book is intended to provide the grounding necessary to move onto more advanced topics. It is not the latest results. There are many more current topics such as blind estimation and MIMO that are not treated here. No single book will ever completely cover this topic. It is good to keep a copy of Dudgeon and Johnson nearby when reading this book. One of the unique aspects of this book is the problem sets. Many of the problems do not have a straightforward unique solution. This is intentional because this is what an engineer will encounter in their career. I recall asking a question in class and Van Trees responding "That's a good question, I need to write that down" and then unfazzed, he continued on with the lecture. This makes the book challenging. If you are a teacher, you need to work out the problems before you assign them.

IMHO, array processing is a very large field and there are many who know a great deal about very little. This book provides a base of knowledge that other books and particularly the literature assume the reader already knows. This book makes the topic much more approachable. It's not an easy book. It's not an easy topic.
