In this paper, we propose eigen decomposition-precoded faster-than-Nyquist (FTN) signaling with power allocation in a frequency-selective fading channel. More specifically, we derive mutual information associated with the proposed FTN signaling. Then, the optimal power coefficients are calculated such that the derived mutual information is maximized. Our analytical performance results show that the proposed FTN signaling scheme achieves a higher information rate than the conventional FTN signaling scheme without relying on power allocation and the classic Nyquist-based signaling scheme, under the assumption that all the schemes employ a root-raised cosine shaping filter. Moreover, our numerical simulation results of the bit error ratio performance and the power spectral density demonstrate that the proposed FTN scheme outperforms the conventional Nyquist-based signaling scheme without sacrificing any bandwidth broadening.
