Recent Applications of Perturbation Filters
As explained in the abstract, the main goal of the thesis was the development of a new algebraic procedure for target detection, based on a novel perturbation filter. The earliest and most studied application was the single target detector (STD) largely described in the previous chapters. However, the algebraic operation underneath the STD is more general and powerful and can be adapted to different scenarios (as long as the entities under analysis lie within a Euclidean space).

The ALOS-PALSAR data for the Chinese test site was provided courtesy of the DRAGON 2 program. Finally we would like to acknowledge support from TerraSAR-X project number LAN0638 for provision of the dual polarised data used.
