By regarding signal transmission as tiling of the time-frequency plane, we propose a multicarrier transmission scheme on hexagonal lattice, coined the term hexagonal multicarrier modulation. To optimally combat the impact of the propagation channels, the underlying lattice parameters and the pulse shape of modulation waveform are jointly optimized to adapt to the channel scattering function from a minimum energy perturbation point of view. It comes out that there exist two equivalent pulse and lattice matching criteria for each channel scattering function to achieve minimal interpulse interference (IPI). Robustness of the proposed system against the wireless channels is analyzed in terms of robustness factor. Numerical analysis and simulation results show that the hexagonal multicarrier transmission system outperforms conventional orthogonal-frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) and lattice-OFDM (LOFDM) systems with regard to robustness against channel dispersion
