MIMO OFDM is one of the prominence communication schemes with multi-carrier modulation. The MIMO combined with OFDM modulation technique provides the reliable high data rate transmission over the broadband wireless channels. They have been widely studied and employed for 4G systems such as Wi-Fi, DVB-T, Wi-MAX and LTE-A. The major challenge in MIMO-OFDM systems is how to estimate the channel. The estimation of the channel is done by various algorithms such as Least Square (LS) and Minimum Mean

The main issue in OFDM systems is the problem of ICI (Inter carrier Interference) which is due to the loss of the orthogonality between the sub-carriers and the signal transmitted.ICI self-cancellation is one of the reduction methods to reduce the ICI effect in the signal.
