Analysis of the optimal linear system for multicarrier FTN communications

Abstract : Faster-than-Nyquist signalization allows for a better spectral efficiency at the expense of an increased complexity. Regarding multicarrier communications, previous work mainly relied on the study of non-linear systems exploiting coding and/or equalization techniques, with no particular optimization regarding the linear part of the system. In this paper, we analyse the behavior of the optimal linear multicarrier system when used with non-linear receiving structures (iterative decoding and direct feedback equalization), or in a standalone fashion. We also investigate the limits of the assumptions commonly made for the implementation of such non-linear systems. The use of this optimal linear system allows for a closed-form expression of the bit-error probability which can be used to predict the performances and help the design of coded systems. Our work also highlights the great performance/complexity trade-off offered by decision feedback equalization in a faster-than-Nyquist context.
