Selected Mapping without Side Information for PAPR Reduction in OFDM

Selected mapping (SLM) is a technique used to reduce the peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR) in orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) systems. SLM requires the transmission of several side information bits for each data block, which results in some data rate loss. These bits must generally be channel-encoded because they are particularly critical to the error performance of the system. This increases the system complexity and transmission delay, and decreases the data rate even further. In this paper, we propose a novel SLM method for which no side information needs to be sent. By considering the example of several OFDM systems using either QPSK or 16-QAM modulation, we show that the proposed method performs very well both in terms of PAPR reduction and bit error rate at the receiver output provided that the number of subcarriers is large enough.
