Development of a decision threshold for radiological source detection utilizing Bayesian statistical techniques applied to gross count measurements
MetadataShow full item record
Numerous studies have been published using Bayesian statistics in source localization and identification, characterization of radioactive samples, and uncertainty analysis; but there is a limited amount of material specific to the development of a decision threshold for simple gross count measurements using Bayesian statistics. Radiation detection in low fidelity systems is customarily accomplished through the measurement of gross counts. Difficulties arise when applying decision techniques to low count rate data, which are restricted by the fact that decisions are being made on individual gross ...
