Abstract:  Orthogonal time frequency space (OTFS) modulation is based on the transmission of information symbols in the delay—Doppler domain rather than in the time—frequency domain (as with OFDM). This has been recently advocated as the modulation scheme appropriate to channels exhibiting large Doppler spreads.  In its original version, OTFS uses transmit and receive shaping waveforms which are biorthogonal with respect to translations by integer multiples of basic time and frequency intervals. Since the uncertainty principle makes it impossible to design waveforms exactly satisfying this biorthogonality constraint, we examine the performance of OTFS using practical (e.g., rectangular) waveforms. We also describe a message-passing demodulation algorithm matched to the features of OTFS. The calculation of error probability shows the amount of diversity that can be achieved on fading channels.
