  title={Performances of Weighted Cyclic Prefix OFDM with Low-Complexity Equalization},
  author={Damien Roque and Cyrille Siclet},
  journal={IEEE Communications Letters},
In this paper, we justify low-complexity equalization techniques for weighted cyclic prefix (WCP)-OFDM. This modulation technique refers to filter bank based multicarrier (FBMC) transmission system provided with short filters. It allows the use of non-rectangular waveforms in order to mitigate interference caused by time-frequency selective channels while preserving an efficient implementation.
