In this paper, the peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR) problem for orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) is investigated. The variations in the nature of the problem along with the utilization of water-filling technique are observed and the corresponding cumulative distribution function for PAPR is determined. In addition to OFDM analysis, another analysis is carried out for the comparison of water-filling technique and an equal power distribution algorithm in case of a multiple input multiple output (MIMO) system and the same PAPR problem is examined in the spatial diversity scenario as well.
