9.1 Introduction

Intricate pulse-shaping techniques have attracted the attention of the community. With these pulse-shaping techniques orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) [111], Nyquist multiplexing [1216], and other multiplexing schemes emerged [17]. Through these techniques transmission of information with highest spectral efficiencies has become possible. A recent transmission experiment ...
