assuming no inter symbol interference, the transmit symbol X gets
multplied by channel H to
produce Y (and N is the noise)
Y = HX + N
so, dividing Y by H gives an estimate of X, aka single tap equalizer.

hmm... I do not follow your train of thoughts. Phase okay, but how do
you extent to amplitude?

By not using DPSK! Instead, QAM is used, along with interleaving and
error-correction coding.

Hi,
I understand that simplified equalization is one of the good reasons
for going with OFDM. But, how do they manage it ?
That is,
The OFDM may be viewed as using many slowly-modulated narrowband
signals rather than one rapidly-modulated wideband signal.
So, The Differential modulation such as DPSK / DQPSK if applied to
each sub-carrier, equalization can be completely omitted. ( Reason -
These schemes are insensitive to slowly changing amplitude and phase
distortion )
But, it produces more erroneous demodulations. :(:(
So, how do they overcome this erroneous demodulation scenarios in
WiMAX ? What is the demodulation technique
normally used in overcoming erroneous demodulations w.r.t
DPSK ?
Thx in advans,
