Reed-Muller Codes for Peak Power Control in Multicarrier CDMA
Reed-Muller codes are studied for peak power control in Multi Carrier Code-Division Multiple Access (MC-CDMA) communication systems. In a coded MC-CDMA system, the information data multiplexed from users is encoded by a Reed-Muller subcode and the codeword is fully-loaded to Walsh-Hadamard spreading sequences. The polynomial representation of a coded MC-CDMA signal is established for theoretical analysis of the Peak-to-Average Power Ratio (PAPR). The Reed-Muller subcodes are defined in a recursive way by the Boolean functions providing the transmitted MC-CDMA signals with the bounded PAPR as well as the error correction capability. A connection between the code rates and the maximum PAPR is theoretically investigated in the coded MC-CDMA.
