Estimation of duration of the rectangular optical pulse with unknown background intensity

Andrey P. Trifonov, Aleksandr A. Milogorodskii


The quasi-likelihood and asymptotically maximum likelihood algorithms of duration estimation have been synthesized and analyzed. The losses in estimation accuracy caused by a priori lack of knowledge of background intensity were also found.


quasi-likelihood estimate; maximum likelihood asymptotic estimate; scattering of estimates; a priori parametric uncertainty
