This paper presents a comprehensive performance analysis of coded orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (COFDM) over the quasi-static multipath Rayleigh fading channels. We first analyze the pairwise error probability (PEP) of COFDM and then consider the union bound on bit error rate (BER) by introducing the notion of diversity guard (DG) and a novel interleaver class, named almost linear interleaver (ALI). A construction of ALI is also introduced with its parameter selection. Simulation results show that the COFDM with ALI outperforms that with random interleaver (RI) and the block interleaver (BI) adopted in the IEEE industry standards.
