Pilot-based channel estimation in OFDM systems with fractional delays

Most studies on OFDM-based communication systems consider that multipath channels consists of a limited set of taps in the discrete-time domain. However, this only holds if the tap delay is a multiple ...

Understanding MMSE equalizer equation

I have read many online materials and journal paper where the equation for MMSE equalizer is given as: $G_{MMSE}$ = $H^H(HH^H+\nu^2I )$ where $H$ is the channel, $H^H$ is its hermitian. $\nu^2$ is ...
