Another alternative to OFDM modulation is OFDM with Offset Quadrature Amplitude Modulation (QAM), or OFDM/OQAM in short. Unlike OFDM, which uses rectangular pulse shape in time domain, OFDM/OQAM has the flexibility of using various pulse shapes with different time-frequency localization properties. This makes OFDM/OQAM less sensitive to the frequency offset caused by the transmission channel and the receiver. Moreover, OFDM/OQAM does not use any CP, hence being more spectrally efficient than OFDM. The first studies related to OFDM/OQAM were presented in [23] and [24]. In [23], [24], their authors introduced a time-offset on each sub-carrier to transmit Pulse Amplitude Modulation (PAM) and QAM constellations, respectively. For the latter, a time shift between the real and imaginary parts is introduced. In [25], the authors highlighted the importance of time-frequency localization features of the prototype filters when transmitting over time-frequency dispersive channels. Some optimized prototype functions other than the rectangular function were also presented. From the signal processing perspective, the link to digital filter banks was first initiated in [32] and then carried out in [33],[18], [1] where the authors presented an implementation design in case of discrete-time prototypes. Hence, OFDM/OQAM is usually referred to as Filter Bank MultiCarrier (FBMC)/OQAM modulation.

Continuous OFDM/OQAM

OFDM modulation consists in transmitting a complex symbol cm,n = cℜm,n + jcℑm,n of duration T0 at time instance n, i.e., nT0 and frequency m, i.e., mF0, with F0 = 1 the T0 subcarrier spacing and j2 = −1. The particularity of OFDM/OQAM is to transmit either the real or the imaginary part of the complex symbol cm,n with a time offset equal to T20 . Moreover, a phase shift of π2 is introduced between two adjacent symbols in time and frequency. Assuming an even number of subcarriers M , the baseband continuous OFDM/OQAM signal is [34], [1]: +∞ N−1 T0 ∑ ∑ )ej2π(2m)F0t s(t) = (cℜ g(t nT ) + jcℑ g(t nT − − 2 − 2m,n 0 2m,n 0.

Time-frequency localization of prototype filters

As presented previously, the OFDM/OQAM modulation scheme relies on the principle of offsetting complex QAM while maintaining the perfect reconstruction constraint, i.e., meaning that for an OFDM/OQAM system as in Fig. 2.4, aˆm,n−α = am,n−α, ∨ m, n. Moreover, a good pulse shape with good time-frequency localization properties can be obtained. In this section, we discuss some well designed prototype filters for OFDM/O QAM modulation. First, we give the following definitions:

Ambiguity function

The orthogonality property of a pulse shape g(t) over a phase space can be analyzed by its ambiguity function Ag(τ, ν) defined as: Ag(τ, ν) = ∫−∞ g(t + 2 )g∗(t − 2 )e−j2πνtdt. (2.21) +∞ τ τ.
The ambiguity function of a given pulse shape also gives an insight of its energy leakage over time and frequency axes. The sampled version of the ambiguity function is defined as: Ag[l, k] = Ag(lT0, kF0), (2.22) and the orthogonality property (i.e. the perfect reconstruction) is satisfied if Ag[0, 0] = 1 and Ag[nT0, mF0] = 0 for (m, n) ≠ (0, 0).

Time-Frequency localization

Let g be a function of L2(R) with Gν its Fourier transform. We denote by ||.|| the norm associated with L2(R). The moments of order 1 and 2 in time and frequency are expressed as follows:
• moment of order 1 in time: ∫−∞ t|g(t)|2dt; m(1)(g) = ||g||2 (2.23) 1 +∞.
