Summary

In this chapter, we are concerned with optimal receiver structures and near-optimal algorithms for data detection and sync parameter estimation on both flat and frequency-selective fading channels. Emphasis is placed on the concept of synchronized detection where the sync parameters are explicitly estimated and then used for detection. Based on this mathematical framework, optimal estimator-detector receivers for joint detection and synchronization are derived. This chapter focuses on the methodology and fundamental insights rather than on details of implementation; these are addressed in the chapters on realizable receiver structures and fading channel estimation.
