In wireless communication systems, channel state information is often assumed to be available at the receiver. Traditionally, a training sequence is used to obtain the estimate of the channel. Alternatively, the channel can be identified using known properties of the transmitted signal. However, the computational effort required to find the joint ML solution to the symbol detection and channel estimation problem increases exponentially with the dimension of the problem. To significantly reduce this computational effort, we formulate the joint ML estimation and detection as an integer least-squares problem, and show that for a wide range of signal-to-noise ratios (SNR) and problem dimensions it can be solved via sphere decoding with expected complexity comparable to the complexity of heuristic techniques.
