A simplified equalization method based on the band structure of the frequency domain channel matrix is proposed for the single carrier systems employing cyclic prefix (SC-CP) over time-varying wireless channels. Using both theoretical analysis and computer simulation, it is shown that the complexity of this method is proportional to the number of symbols in one SC-CP block and is less than that of traditional block equalization methods. We also show that they have similar performance.
