Frequency-Domain Receiver Design for Doubly-Selective Channels discusses broadband wireless transmission techniques, which are serious candidates to be implemented in future broadband wireless and cellular systems, aiming at providing high and reliable data transmission and concomitantly high mobility. This book provides an overview of the channel impairments that may affect performance of single carrier and multi-carrier block transmission techniques in mobile environments. Moreover, it also provides a new insight into the new receiver designs able to cope with double selectivity that affects present and future broadband high speed mobile communication systems.
