"This research is concerned with the optimum and suboptimum ways of providing self bit synchronization for binary overlapping signals. A maximum likelihood synchronizer is derived as the optimum approach. The suboptimum ways are those employing decision-directed feedback and matched derivative filter techniques which are proposed for treating the overlapping signals. Combining the two suboptimum techniques along with the bandlimited version of the overlapping signal, a suboptimum synchronizer is derived. The performance of the above synchronizer is evaluated by Monte Carlo simulation techniques. Finally, a bit synchronizer using nonlinear filtering theory is considered. The performance of a nonlinear bit synchronizer is discussed"--Abstract, page ii.
