Orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) is one of those ideas that had been building for a very long time, and became a practical reality when the appearance of mass market applications coincided with the availability of efficient software and electronic technologies. This article describes the background and some of the striking early development of OFDM, with explanation of the motivations for using it. The author presume a broad definition of OFDM as frequency-division multiplexing… 
OFDM: today and in the future of next generation wireless communications
TLDR
This work presents a brief summary of the history of OFDM, a description of the key features of this technology is delivered, and it is argued why OFDM has been the fundamental scheme of many communication systems for the past and current years.
Block Transceivers: OFDM and Beyond
TLDR
This book presents OFDM-inspired systems that are able to, at most, halve the amount of redundancy used by OFDM systems while keeping the computational complexity comparable, and memoryless linear time-invariant transceivers with reduced redundancy.

TLDR
It is demonstrated that how the cyclic prefix can be used to enhance the operation of an OFDM equalizer when the channel is perfectly known at the receiver or is obtained through training.
Spectral Encapsulation to Block the Out-of-Band Emission of OFDM Signals for Future Communications
TLDR
The spectral encapsulation (SE) that shapes the spectrum of OFDM signals and maintains the bit error rate (BER) performance of CP-OFDM as it is, and the complexity can be significantly improved because it can be implemented using IFFT.
Clustered-orthogonal frequency division multiplexing for power line communication: when is it beneficial?
TLDR
Numerical results show that the clustered-OFDM schemes based on HS-OF DM provide the same bit-error-rate performance and can trade off channel capacity for CC, which can give rise to low-priced transceivers for PLC technologies.
Implementation and Evaluation of OFDM and FBMC Systems
TLDR
Discussion of the various parameters of OFDM behaviors such as Carrier Frequency Offset (CFO) estimation, Cyclic Prefix and Bit Error Rate (BER) is done.
An implementation of peak to average power ratio reduction for multicarrier system (orthogonal frequency division multiplexing)
TLDR
These two PAPR reduction methods consider sub-parts of signal scrambling technique that depend on phase rotation technique in its operation, and simulation results show SLM and PTS methods have improved the P APR reduction performance with different parameters.
