We address the problem of frequency-selective channel estimation and symbol detection using superimposed training. The superimposed training consists of the sum of a known sequence and a data-dependent sequence that is unknown to the receiver. The data-dependent sequence cancels the effects of the unknown data on channel estimation. The performance of the(More)
We address the problem of frequency synchronization in OFDM-based communications systems in the context of frequency-selective fading channels. Frequency offsets are estimated by inserting null sub-carriers into a single OFDM block. The paper clarifies issues related to acquisition range and identifiability of carrier frequency offset (CFO), and performance(More)
This paper addresses the problem of training design for frequency-selective channel and carrier frequency-offset (CFO) estimation in single- and multiple-antenna systems under different energy-distribution constraints. The performance metric used here is the Cramer-Rao bound (CRB). The paper first addresses the CFO-free case and then generalizes the results(More)
We consider the problem of estimating the parameters of a chirp signal observed in multiplicative noise, i.e., whose amplitude is randomly time-varying. Two methods for solving this problem are presented. First, an unstructured nonlinear least-squares approach (NLS) is proposed. It is shown that by minimizing the NLS criterion with respect to all samples of(More)
We consider the problem of pilot design for channel estimation in multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) systems in the presence of virtual carriers. The design criterion is the average mean-square error (MSE) of the least square (LS) estimates of the channel frequency response over the data carriers. To(More)
In this paper, the problem of joint carrier frequency offset (CFO) and channel estimation for OFDM systems over the fast time-varying frequency-selective channel is explored within the framework of the expectation-maximization (EM) algorithm and parametric channel model. Assuming that the path delays are known, a novel iterative pilot-aided algorithm for(More)
We address the problem of carrier frequency offset (CFO) synchronization in OFDM communications systems in the context of frequency-selective fading channels. We consider the case where the transmitted symbols have constant modulus, i.e., PSK constellations. A novel blind CFO estimation algorithm is developed. The new algorithm is shown to greatly(More)
