Decrease Magnitude of Noise As you have seen statistical decisions are based on an explicit acceptance of the trade-off between better detectability (decreasing misses) and better reliability (decreasing false alarms). In statistics we had decided to minimize misses consistent with no more than 5 false alarm errors per 100. We accepted some errors of one type in order to attenuate errors of the other type....
