Required SNR using Albersheim’s equation

`SNR = albersheim(prob_Detection,prob_FalseAlarm)`

SNR = albersheim(prob_Detection,prob_FalseAlarm,N)

returns
the signal-to-noise ratio in decibels. This value indicates the ratio
required to achieve the given probabilities of detection `SNR`

= albersheim(`prob_Detection`

,`prob_FalseAlarm`

)`prob_Detection`

and
