Abstract Modulation classification is an intermediate step between signal detection and
demodulation, and plays a key role in various civilian and military applications. In this cor-
respondence, higher-order cyclic cumulants (CCs) are explored to discriminate linear digital
modulations in flat fading channels. Single- and multi-antenna CC-based classifiers are inves-
tigated. These benefit from the robustness of the CC-based features to unknown phase and
timing offset. Furthermore, the latter provides significant performance improvement due to
spatial diversity used to combat the fading effect. Classifier performances are investigated
under a variety of channel conditions. In addition, analytical closed-form expressions for
the cyclic cumulant polyspectra of linearly digitally modulated signals affected by fading,
carrier frequency and timing offsets, and additive Gaussian noise are derived, along with a
condition for the oversampling factor to avoid aliasing in the cycle and spectral frequency
