In this chapter, we focus on the design of pulse shapes for orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) systems. As pointed out above, in such systems, mutual orthogonality of the subcarriers alone is not sufficient to ensure ICI-free communications. Thus, recent research effort has been directed towards the design of pulse shapes that possess various other characteristics that are necessary for reliable communication in practical settings. In [3] for instance, soft iterative ICI cancellation in conjunction with pulse shaping has been proposed for low-complexity channel equalization in OFDM systems. Observing that a nearly flat spectral main-lobe generally results in a higher average signal power, and rapid side-lobe attenuation helps contain the magnitude of interference, pulse shapes with such properties have been introduced in [4-7].
