In recent years the quadratic program (QP) is applied for the blind signal detection of the time-varying OFDM systems. The minimum solution of the QP is obtained by means of exhaustive search in the vector space, which often involves large and nondeterministic complexity. In this paper, we derive some formulas describing the probability information about the received PSK-type signals. With these formulas, a novel genetic algorithm (GA) based method is proposed. Different from other approaches, this method includes a new selection and mutation strategy, ensuring the near-optimal solution can be found with least complexity. The simulations prove the effectiveness of the new method.
