OFDM and Multicarrier Signal Processing

Paolo Banelli and Luca Rugini,    Dipartimento di Ingegneria, Università degli Studi di Perugia, Perugia, Italy,,


Orthogonal Frequency-Division Multiplexing (OFDM) is probably the topic that in the last two decades has motivated and attracted most of the research efforts and standardization activities for the physical layer of digital communication systems. Aim of this paper is to introduce the subject as a natural evolution from classical single-carrier (SC) systems, by preserving intuition and links to the underlying physical phenomena. The first part of the paper is a thorough introduction to OFDM and multicarrier (MC) communications, ...
