ESTIMATING SPARSE MIMO CHANNELS HAVING COMMON SUPPORT

According to a first aspect of the present invention there is provided a method of estimating, jointly, a set of multipath channels having a common path support, the method comprising the steps of, estimating jointly the common path support of the set of multipath channels using a spectral estimation technique, estimating path amplitudes, for each channel in the set of multipath channels, using the estimation of the common path support, to obtain an estimate of the set of multipath channels.
