Sequential Hypothesis Testing and Quickest Change Detection: Optimum Tests
This book is currently under preparation and will be co-authored by A.G. Tartakovsky and G.V. Moustakides. It will be published by CRC. Expected publication year: 2017.
The book focuses on sequential techniques, in particular on the problems of sequential change detection and sequential hypo­thesis testing. Emphasis is placed on deriving non­asym­ptotically optimum schemes. The known optimality properties of CUSUM, Shiryayev-Roberts and Shewhart test are presented with novel and easy to understand proofs.
Topics elaborated:
-  Simple introduction to optimal stopping
-  Sequential hypothesis testing and SPRT
-  Change-time modeling and optimality criteria
-  Bayesian approach for the i.i.d. and the BM case
-  CUSUM for the BM case and for Ito processes
-  CUSUM for discrete time i.i.d. processes
-  The Poisson disorder problem
-  Alternative Lorden-like criteria
-  2-Sided CUSUM tests
-  Decentralized CUSUM detection & hypothesis testing
