— Oscillator phase noise limits the performance of high speed communication systems since it results in time varying channels and rotation of the signal constellation from symbol to symbol. In this paper, joint estimation of channel gains and Wiener phase noise in multi-input multi-output (MIMO) systems is analyzed. The signal model for the estimation(More)
—The distributed nature of cooperative networks may result in multiple carrier frequency offsets (CFOs), which make the channels time varying and overshadow the diversity gains promised by collaborative communications. This paper seeks to address multiple CFO estimation using training sequences in space-division multiple access (SDMA) cooperative networks.(More)
This article has been accepted for publication in a future issue of this journal, but has not been fully edited. Content may change prior to final publication. Abstract Multiple distributed nodes in cooperative networks generally are subject to multiple carrier frequency offsets (MCFOs) and multiple timing offsets (MTOs), which result in time varying(More)

Heterogeneous Networks (HetNets) are known to enhance the bandwidth efficiency and throughput of wireless networks by more effectively utilizing the network resources. However, the higher density of users and access points in HetNets introduces significant inter-user interference that needs to be mitigated through complex and sophisticated interference(More)
—In multi-relay cooperative systems, the signal at the destination is affected by impairments such as multiple channel gains, multiple timing offsets (MTOs), and multiple carrier frequency offsets (MCFOs). In this paper we account for all these impairments and propose a new transceiver structure at the relays and a novel receiver design at the destination(More)
—In this paper we propose a new low feedback and low complexity scheme that adjusts the phases at the relays, thus allowing for the coherent combining of signals from multiple relays in a cooperative multi-input-multi-output (MIMO) system using space division multiple access (SDMA). It is assumed that the channel state information (CSI) is not fed back to(More)
—This paper addresses the problem of estimating time varying phase noise caused by imperfect oscillators in multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) systems. The estimation problem is parameterized in detail and based on an equivalent signal model its dimensionality is reduced to minimize the overhead associated with phase noise estimation. New exact and(More)
— Previous results in the literature have shown that derivation of the optimum maximum-likelihood (ML) receiver for symbol-by-symbol (SBS) detection of an uncoded data sequence in the presence of random phase noise is an intractable problem, since it involves the computation of the conditional probability distribution function (PDF) of the phase noise(More)
