Multicarrier techniques based on affine Fourier transform (AFT) have been recently proposed for transmission in the wireless channels. The AFT represents a generalization of the Fourier and fractional Fourier transform. We derive the exact and approximated interference power, upper bound and measure of applicability for the AFT based multicarrier (AFT-MC) system. It is demonstrated that the AFT-MC system effectively minimizes interference in time-varying multipath channels with line-of-sight component and narrow beamwidth of scattered components that often occurs in aeronautical and satellite communications.
