multipath

(1) See multipath routing.

(2) A radio signal that winds up taking two or more paths because the signal is reflected off buildings or other obstructions. Although multipath is a problem with all kinds of radio transmission, ghosts on a TV channel are an example of multipath that you can see with your own eyes. See antenna diversity.

To achieve the goal of favorable trade-off between performance in severe multipath fading channel and complexity of signal processing, the single-carrier frequency-domain equalization (SC-FDE) has recently attracted increased interest because of its similar performance, efficiency, and low signal processing complexity advantages as OFDM, and in addition it is less sensitive than OFDM to radio frequency (RF) impairments such as power amplifier nonlinearities.
