New, simple bounds are presented for the probability of error in a binary hypothesis test for communications using diversity signaling in correlated Rayleigh fading. The bounds are developed in the context of pairwise error-event probabilities in decoding an error-correction code. A long-standing conjecture regarding the form of worst-case error events in(More)
Traditionally, a probabilistic model has been used to analyze a wireless communication system’s susceptibility to multipath fading. However, the characteristics of fading in an actual wireless communication link depend on the particular deterministic geometry of reflectors that the signal encounters. In this paper, we present a deterministic model of(More)
New bounds on the probability of bit error are presented for a communication system with binary antipodal modulation and soft-decision maximum-likelihood decoding over a correlated Rayleigh-fading channel. The bounds are illustrated by considering a system using convolutional encoding. The bounds are closed-form expressions in terms of the code's transfer(More)

Communication systems must maintain tight timing synchronization between the transmitter and receiver. Systems typically pull-in timing from a large timing offset and then track timing once it has been sufficiently pulled in. When timing errors are large, additional reference symbols are needed to pull-in time. In some frequency hopping systems, the time(More)
