In this letter, we first extend the convolution theory of Discrete Fourier Transform (DFT) and introduce a structure of layered Fast Fourier Transform (FFT). Based on this framework we propose novel asymmetric OFDM systems which bridge general OFDM and single carrier systems. Adaptive to the capability of the transceiver, asymmetric OFDM systems provide significant flexibility in system design and operation. We show how effects of noise enhancement and frequency diversity counteract each other in asymmetric OFDM systems. Performance comparison with general OFDM and single carrier systems is also given.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
