This paper considers practically relevant aspects and advantages of pulse-shaping orthogonal/biorthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM/BFDM) systems. We analyze the intersymbol/intercarrier interference (ISI/ICI) in such systems when they operate over time-varying channels. Two methods for an ISI/ICI-minimizing pulse design are proposed, and efficient FFT-based modulator and demodulator implementations are presented. Simulations show that for fast time-varying channels, optimized BFDM systems can outperform conventional OFDM systems with respect to ISI/ICI.
