Recently, assuming ideal brick-wall transmit filtering, we proposed a frequency-domain block signal detection (FDBD) with maximum likelihood detection employing QR decomposition and M-algorithm (called QRM-MLD) for the reception of single-carrier (SC) signals transmitted over a frequency-selective fading channel. QR decomposition (QRD) is applied to a concatenation of the propagation channel and discrete Fourier transform (DFT). However, a large number of surviving paths is required in the M-algorithm to achieve sufficiently improved bit error rate (BER) performance. The introduction of filtering can achieve improved BER performance due to larger frequency diversity gain while keeping a lower peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR) than orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM). In this paper, we develop FDBD with QRMMLD for filtered SC signal reception. QRD is applied to a concatenation of transmit filter, propagation channel, and DFT. We evaluate BER and throughput performances by computer simulation. From performance evaluation, we discuss how the filter roll-off factor affects the achievable BER and throughput performances and show that as the filter roll-off factor increases, the required number of surviving paths in the M-algorithm can be reduced.
