Optimization of the performance of multicarrier transmission over a linear dispersive channel is presented. The optimum data and power assignment to the subcarriers are derived for both the conventional error probability criterion, and a new criterion based on the normalized mean-square error. The assignments and algorithms hold for channels where performance is degraded by additive noise, intersymbol and interchannel interference. Lower bounds on throughput are derived and are used to compare multicarrier performance with conventional single-carrier quadrature amplitude modulation (QAM) with both linear and decision feedback equalization. It is seen that multicarrier transmission can provide a significant improvement at low and intermediate channel signal-to-noise ratios. As an example, the optimization is applied to the high-speed digital subscriber loop, and multicarrier transmission is demonstrated to be superior to decision feedback equalized single-carrier QAM
