Summary

Chapter 7 concentrates on the channel estimation tasks in SISO- and MIMO-OFDM receivers. For equalization, though one prominent advantage of OFDM lies in its simple yet effective one-tap equalizer, more and more sophisticated equalization techniques that can further improve system performance are investigated and illustrated.
