carrier

n. in general, any person or business which transports property or people by any means of conveyance (truck, auto, taxi, bus, airplane, railroad, ship), almost always for a charge. The carrier is the transportation system and not the owner or operator of the system. There are two types of carriers: common carrier (in the regular business or a public utility of transportation) and a private carrier (a party not in the business, but agrees to make a delivery or carry a passenger in a specific instance). Regular transportation systems are regulated by states and by the Interstate Commerce Commission if they cross state lines. (See: common carrier, private carrier)

Since the OQAM-OFDM signals are overlapped with adjacent data blocks due to the bank of filters and the time offset between the real and imaginary parts, the conventional definition of PAPR for OFDM systems no longer match perfectly to the OQAM-OFDM systems.
