In this Letter, the authors propose a low-complexity search method for carrier frequency offset (CFO) estimation in generalised frequency division multiplexing (GFDM). The proposed technique does not have any limitations on CFO acquisition range while providing an accurate estimate. Compared with the existing solutions in the literature with the lowest complexity, the proposed technique brings at least an order of magnitude complexity reduction without any performance penalty. Finally, the numerical results and comparisons with the existing literature in terms of performance and complexity attest the efficacy of the proposed method.
