Synchronization in Decode and Forward (DF) cooperative communication systems is a complex and challenging task requiring estimation of many independent timing and carrier offsets at each relay in the broadcasting phase and multiple timing and carrier offsets at the destination in the relaying phase. This paper presents a scheme for blind channel, timing and carrier offset estimation in a DF cooperative system with one source, M relays and one destination equipped with N antennas. In particular,...[Show more]
