In a bid to cope with challenges of increasing demand for higher data rate, better quality of service, and higher network capacity, there is a migration from Single Input Single Output (SISO) antenna technology to a more promising Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) antenna technology. On the other hand, Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) technique has emerged as a very popular multi-carrier modulation technique, thus it is considered as a promising solution to enhance the data rate of future broadband wireless communication systems.

The first contribution of this thesis is the development of a low complexity adaptive algorithm that is robust against slow and fast fading channel scenarios, in comparison to the conventional individual parameter estimation by E. Teletar in his famous paper of 1999. Implementing the Adaptive MMSE Receivers in MIMO OFDM systems which I refer to (AMUD MIMO OFDM), combines the adaptive minimum mean square error multiuser receiver's scheme with prior information of the channel and interference cancelation in the spatial domain, achieves enhanced joint channel estimation and signal detection which makes the new technique effectively mobile.

A mathematical analysis and simulation results to estimate the Information Capacity of Mobile Communication system with MMSE DFE and OFDM receivers were investigated. The capacity of a stationary channel with ISI is achievable by both the single carrier MMSE DFE and multicarrier modulation over narrow sub channels with OFDM receivers. The achieved capacity result shows that in both techniques single carrier and multicarrier, apart from different implementations are essentially identical when it comes to achievable criteria for information channel capacity.

Lastly, AMUD MIMO OFDM were compared with both adaptive vector pre-coding and iterative system and their performance were fantastic, results shows that it will assure transmission over a high channel capacity.
