— In this paper, channel estimation for Space-Time Block Code (STBC)-Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) is investigated for Mobile WiMax systems. A new channel estimation approach is proposed using the dedicated pilot subcarriers defined at constant intervals by the WiMax standard. The estimation method has low computation as only linear(More)
—So far, complex valued orthogonal codes have been used differentially in cooperative broadband networks. These codes however achieve less than unitary code rate when utilized in cooperative networks with more than two relays. Therefore, the main challenge is how to construct unitary rate codes for non-coherent cooperative broadband networks with more than(More)
— Most of the previous works on distributed space-time coding assume that there is no direct link between the source and the destination, which means that the source is not actively involved in cooperation. In order to present the benefits that can be extracted when the source is actively involved in cooperation, we propose a source-assisting (SA) strategy(More)
