Summary: 
Polynomial cancellation coding (PCC) was proposed to mitigate the sever inter-carrier-interference (ICI) in an orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) system caused by frequency offset. In this paper, we consider the effectiveness of PCC under time-variant multi-path Rayleigh fading analytically and by simulations. We first consider an analytical expression of the signal-to-interference plus noise power ratio (SINR) and then derive an approximation of the bit-error-rate (BER) of the OFDM-PCC system under the assumption that ICI is well approximated by a white Gaussian noise. Since the bandwidth efficiency of OFDM-PCC is half of that of normal OFDM, we compare the BER performance of the scheme with the normal OFDM system of the same bit-rate when low, medium, and high level modulations are used. Our results show that OFDM-PCC performs well even for high modulation level under time-varying multi-path fading.
