This chapter describes a number of evaluation methods used to analyze the detection performance of optical systems which are disturbed by interferometric crosstalk. Computation methods based on Gaussian approximation, Modified Chernoff bound, and Saddlepoint approximation have powerful computational characteristics that they are frequently used for crosstalk analyses. A comparative assessment covering computational performance is made for these methods in terms of their formulation complexity, accuracy, and computational speed.
