Decoding of compressed multicarrier modulation
Ignacio Casasnovas (ERASMUS) and Borja Pachán (ERASMUS)
In this thesis we decode time and frequency compressed multicarrier modulation signals, which are also known under the name 2-dimensional Mazo signaling. The increase in spectral efficiency compared to conventional OFDM is roughly 40-60%, still the system theoretically achieves the same bit error rate. Previously a reduced complexity deocder based on soft succesive interference cancellation was proposed for this modulation. In this thesis we try to improve the decoder. Our improvements are significant, up to a factor of 50 in decreased bit error rate.
