We introduce an analytical approach to evaluate the error probability of orthogonal frequency-division-multiplexing (OFDM) systems subject to carrier frequency offset (CFO) in frequency-selective channels, characterized by Rayleigh or Rician fading. By properly exploiting the Gaussian approximation of the intercarrier interference (ICI), we show that the bit-error rate (BER) for an uncoded OFDM system with quadrature amplitude modulation (QAM) can be expressed by the sum of a few integrals, whose number depends on the constellation size. Each integral can be evaluated numerically, or, in Rayleigh fading, by using a series expansion that involves generalized hypergeometric functions. Simulation results illustrate that the theoretical analysis is quite accurate, especially for Rayleigh channels, and also with nonlinear amplifiers.
