Orthogonal frequency division multiplex/offset QAM (OFDM/OQAM) has been proven to be a promising multi-carrier modulation (MCM) technique for the transmission of signals over multipath fading channels. However, OFDM/OQAM has also the intrinsic disadvantage of high peak-to-average-power ratio (PAPR) that should be alleviated. In this paper, a novel selective mapping (SLM) method is proposed for OFDM/OQAM system. Since the pulse shape may cover a few OFDM symbols, the basic principle of the

Analysis and simulation results show that, compared to the existing SLM algorithms for OFDM/OQAM system, the proposed method has better PAPR performance and lower computation complexity.
