High computational complexity associated with maximum-likelihood (ML) data decoding in orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) systems that use selected mapping (SLM) for the reducing peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR) can be significantly reduced using modified SLM and data decoding techniques presented in this Letter. Simulations show that the proposed method achieves similar PAPR reduction capability and data recovery performance compared with standard SLM (with perfect data recovery) and an ML detection scheme.
