In this paper, the authors analyze the effects of Inter Channel Interference (ICI) and Inter Symbol Interference (ISI) on the performance of a Multi-Symbol Encapsulated Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (MSE-OFDM) system. MSEOFDM is a bandwidth efficient OFDM scheme, where a number of OFDM symbols are grouped together as a frame and protected by one single cyclic prefix. This reduces the extent of redundancy caused by the CP and increases the bandwidth efficiency of the system. They have derived expressions for probability of error for MSE-OFDM in presence of ICI and ISI, which result from the time variation and delay spread of mobile channels.
