wire-line communications and also has been employed in                  the inverse fast Fourier transform (IFFT). This results in the
wireless local area network (WLAN) e.g. IEEE 802.11. Other              following signal:
applications of OFDM are digital audio broadcasting (DAB)
and digital video broadcasting (DVB).

   To reduce the PAPR different techniques were proposed.
These techniques can be categorized into the following,
