Abstract: Generalised frequency division multiplexing (GFDM) is a multicarrier transmission scheme that offers a flexible framework to address diverse requirements of fifth generation of cellular networks. Compared to orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM), the application of pulse shaping in GFDM can control the out of band (OOB) radiation and enables relaxed synchronisation requirements. However, the sub-carriers in GFDM are no longer orthogonal and there is inherent interference. Since this interference is known at the transmitter, it can be mitigated by means of precoding techniques. In this paper, Tomlinson-Harashima precoding (THP) scheme is applied to GFDM transceiver and its performances is compared to previous methods in terms of bit error rate (BER) and peak to average power ratio (PAPR). The results show that the proposed precoder outperforms previous methods in both BER and PAPR.
