In multicarrier transmission schemes, the essential requirement on the elementary pulse or envelope function is the orthogonality with its time-frequency shifted versions. However, the time and frequency dispersion of the mobile radio channel leads to the loss of orthogonality which produces intersymbol interference (ISI) and interchannel interference (ICI). Therefore, another requirement on the elementary pulse has to be imposed: the good localization in time and frequency. Based on the characteristics of the mobile radio channel, we design a new pulse to minimize ICI and ISI.
