Unified modeling and estimation of the MD (multiplicative distortion) in finite-alphabet digital communication systems is presented. A simple form of MD is the carrier phase exp(jθ), which has to be estimated and compensated for in a coherent receiver. A more general case with fading must, however, allow for amplitude as well as phase variations of the MD. The authors assume a state-variable model for the MD and generally obtain a nonlinear estimation problem with additional randomly varying system parameters such as received signal power, frequency offset, and Doppler spread. An extended Kalman filter is then applied as a near-optimal solution to the adaptive MD and channel parameter estimation problem. Examples are given to show the use and some advantages of this scheme
