[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: This paper proposes a low-complexity algorithm for blind equalization of data
in OFDM-based wireless systems with general constellations. The proposed
algorithm is able to recover data even when the channel changes on a
symbol-by-symbol basis, making it suitable for fast fading channels. The
proposed algorithm does not require any statistical information of the channel
and thus does not suffer from latency normally associated with blind methods.
We also demonstrate how to reduce the complexity of the algorithm, which
becomes especially low at high SNR. Specifically, we show that in the high SNR
regime, the number of operations is of the order O(LN), where L is the cyclic
prefix length and N is the total number of subcarriers. Simulation results
confirm the favorable performance of our algorithm.
