High data rates and multipath propagation give rise to frequency-selectivity of wireless channels, while carrier frequency offsets and mobility-induced Doppler shifts introduce time-selectivity in wireless links. The resulting time- and frequency-selective (or doubly selective) channels offer joint multipath-Doppler diversity gains. Relying on a basis expansion model of the doubly selective channel, we prove that the maximum achievable multipath-Doppler diversity order is determined by the rank of the correlation matrix of the channel's expansion coefficients, and is multiplicative in the effective degrees of freedom that the channel exhibits in the time and frequency dimensions. Interestingly, it turns out that time-frequency reception alone does not guarantee maximum diversity, unless the transmission is also designed judiciously. We design such block precoded transmissions. The corresponding designs for frequency-selective or time-selective channels follow as special cases, and thorough simulations are provided to corroborate our theoretical findings.
