Summary

In this chapter we derive maximum-likelihood (ML) synchronization algorithms for time and phase. Frequency estimation and synchronization are treated in Chapter 8.

The algorithms are obtained as the solution to a mathematical optimization problem. The performance criterion we choose is the ML criterion. In analogy to filter design we speak of synthesis of synchronization algorithms to emphasize that we use mathematics to find algorithms – as opposed to analyzing their performance.
