Abstract: memoryless channels. First, we derive the maximum likelihood decision rule and an exact expression for the symbol error rate for n ≥ 1, avoiding a numerically unstable aspect of the n = 1 formula of [GK76] and generalizing the n = 2 result of [SV03]. Next, we compare the capacity of multipulse PPM to that of conventional single-pulse PPM when averaged power, peak, and bandwidth constraints are simultaneously imposed. On the basis, we demonstrate that multipulse PPM does not produce appreciable gains over conventional PPM except at high average power.
