This thesis presents an analysis of the Modified Cramer Rao Bound (MCRB) for synchroniser performance in burst mode communication applications. This is accomplished by introducing the topic of burst mode communications and its practical applications, discussing the importance of synchronisation, presenting a model through which the mathematical analysis of this thesis is based upon, deriving a set of equations which can be used to calculate the MCRB and finally by performing various calculations of the MCRB with different parameters to examine their effects on the MCRB. The methods presented in this thesis are different from those presented in existing literature, which generally do not address the issue of burst mode synchronisation directly. The differences between the methods presented in this thesis and those of existing literature is also discussed.
