Recently the use of multiple-input multiple-output (M1MO) orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) systems has been proposed for signaling over frequency-selective fading channels. Although various aspects of these systems have been considered in the literature, the problem of the inherent high peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR) is not examined. In this paper, we consider PAPR reduction for MIMO-OFDM systems and propose alternate low-complexity algorithms that can be used in conjunction with the trellis shaping method. We show that a PAPR reduction in the order of 4-5 dB can be achieved at the cost of a slight reduction in the spectral efficiency. Furthermore, we compare the trellis shaping technique with other PAPR reduction techniques such as tone reservation and partial transmit sequences.
