We focus on the use of Cramer-Rao-like bounds for the estimation of a deterministic parameter in the presence of random nuisance parameters. As a working example, we consider the problem of estimating the carrier frequency offset affecting a linearly modulated waveform received through a Rician fading channel. We calculate the relevant Cramer-Rao bound (CRB) and also a set of Cramer-Rao-like bounds proposed in the literature, among which we mention the hybrid CRB, the modified CRB and the Miller-Chang (1978) bound. An extension of the latter bound is also provided. The relative merits of these bounds are discussed, both in terms of their tightness and ease of calculation.

Abstract

We focus on the use of Cramer-Rao-like bounds for the estimation of a deterministic parameter in the presence of random nuisance parameters. As a working example, we consider the problem of estimating the carrier frequency offset affecting a linearly modulated waveform received through a Rician fading channel. We calculate the relevant Cramer-Rao bound (CRB) and also a set of Cramer-Rao-like bounds proposed in the literature, among which we mention the hybrid CRB, the modified CRB and the Miller-Chang (1978) bound. An extension of the latter bound is also provided. The relative merits of these bounds are discussed, both in terms of their tightness and ease of calculation. A few useful inequalities involving the above bounds are also established.
