Semiblind joint channel estimation and equalization for OFDM systems in rapidly varying channels
We describe a new joint iterative channel estimation and equalization algorithm for joint channel estimation and data detection for orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) systems in the presence of frequency selective and rapidly timevarying channels. The algorithm is based on the expectation maximization-maximum a posteriori (EM-MAP) technique which is very suitable for the multicarrier signal formats. The algorithm leads to a receiver structure that yields the equalized output using the channel estimates. The pilot symbols are employed to estimate the initial channel coefficients effectively and unknown data symbols are averaged out in the algorithm. The band-limited discrete cosine serial expansion of low dimensionality is employed to represent the time-varying fading channel. In this way the resulting reduced dimensional channel coefficients are estimated iteratively with tractable complexity. The extensive computer simulations show that the algorithm has excellent symbol error rate (SER) and mean square error (MSE) performances for very high mobility even during the initialization step.

Pilot Assisted Channel Estimation for Asymmetrically Clipped Optical OFDM over Visible Light Channels The Visible Light Communication(VLC) has drawn significant attention recently for wireless communication in addressing the performance limitations of wireless systems due to the scarcity of bandwidth. In VLC system the visible lights is used not only for illuminating rooms but also for an optical data transmission. Asymmetrically clipped optical orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (ACO-OFDM) has been proposed for VLC systems to provide optically power efficient solution in the optical domain. ...
In the STBC-SM systems the information is carried both by STBC symbols and indices of the transmit antennas from which these symbols are transmitted. Channel estimation is a critical process at the receiver during the coherent detection of the transmitted STBC symbols and indices of the transmit antennas. In this paper a spline interpolation and pilot symbols based channel estimation has been proposed for the space-time block coded spatial modulation (STBC-SM) systems to track the channel variations ...
Spatial Modulation (SM) based on the use of antenna indices to transmit information in addition to the conventional signal constellations has been recently proposed to solve practical problems encountered in MIMO systems. In the literature estimation of CSI for SM systems is simply investigated by RLS for slow fading channels. However iterative receivers that offer significant performance gains over a non- iterative when the total number of pilot is not sufficient and the channel is fast fading ...
