We propose an efficient and accurate method for imposing a desired autocorrelation on random sequences with arbitrarily distributed envelope. In particular, the method is applied to the simulation of Nakagami-m and Weibull fading channels, with arbitrary values of the fading parameter. The proposed method is based on the unidimensional Iman-Conover method.(More)
In this letter we present new and simple closed form expressions for the true Cramér-Rao lower bound (CRB) for data-aided (DA) joint and individual carrier frequency offset and symbol timing estimation from a linearly modulated waveform transmitted over an AWGN channel. The bounds are derived under a carrier-phase-independent (CPI) estimation strategy(More)
In this correspondence, we propose a new feedforward frequency offset or single frequency estimator which is based on a single weighted sample correlation with lag k, computed from N noisy observations. The new estimator is a simple generalization of the unweighted Lank-Reed-Pollon (LRP) estimator introduced in [G. W. Lank, I. S. Reed, and G. E. Pollon, ";A(More)
In this paper the problem of generating a stationary band-limited Gaussian random vector with arbitrary complex autocorrelation by the inverse discrete Fourier transform (IDFT) algorithm is considered. Instead of using the classical frequency mask (FM), determined from samples of the (band-limited) target power spectral density (PSD) of the process, a new(More)
We present the NEFOCAST project (named by the contraction of "Nefele", which is the Italian spelling for the mythological cloud nymph Nephele, and "forecast"), funded by the Tuscany Region, about the feasibility of a system for the detection and monitoring of precipitation fields over the regional territory based on the use of a widespread network of(More)
This work studies the impact of a specific channel time correlation model on the link-level performance of a coded OFDM system that uses iterative channel estimation. When the main focus of extensive simulation campaigns is to measure the overall system performance, it would be desirable to implement low-complexity algorithms that replace the(More)
