 Multiplexing Summary
Multiplexing (also MUXing) is a term used in electrical engineering to refer to a process where multiple sources of information are combined in order to ease the organization, conversion, and transportation of the material from one place to another.
Multiplexing can also be accomplished through alternating polarisation (horizontal/vertical or clockwise/counterclockwise) on each adjacent channel and satellite, however this is only applicable to wireless communications.
Multiplexing may also refer to a juggling technique where multiple objects are released from one hand at the same time.

 Coded Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (COFDM)
Therefore, a good way to model a carrier signal is to ignore the low frequency modulating signal and just assume that the multipaths are each high frequency sinusoids with different amplitudes due to the different distances covered (the amplitude reduces the further it travels) and relative phase angle due to the different delay.
This means that the frequency spectrum of the transmitted signal is given by the values of the complex data symbols on the subcarriers.
This property is that the discrete frequency spectrum that is calculated by a DFT from a block of data samples has frequency samples that are all equally spaced in frequency, and this spacing equals 1/T, where T is the total duration of the time samples in the block.

 Theory of Frequency Division Multiplexing- Developer Zone - National Instruments
Frequency division multiplexing (FDM) means that the total bandwidth available to the system is divided into a series of nonoverlapping frequency sub-bands that are then assigned to each communicating source and user pair.
Disadvantages of FDM include the need for bandpass filters, which are relatively expensive and complicated to construct and design (remember that these filters are usually used in the transmitters as well as the receivers).
Another disadvantage of FDM is that in many practical communication systems, the power amplifier in the transmitter has nonlinear characteristics (linear amplifiers are more complex to build), and nonlinear amplification leads to the creation of out-of-band spectral components that may interfere with other FDM channels.

 Orthogonal frequency division multiplexing/modulation communication system for improving ability of data transmission ...
Though similar to the conventional FDM (Frequency Division Multiplexing) scheme, the OFDM scheme is characterized in that it can obtain optimal transmission efficiency during high-speed data transmission by maintaining orthogonality among a plurality of sub-carriers.
In addition, the OFDM scheme has excellent frequency efficiency and is resistant to multi-path fading, thus making it possible to obtain optimal transmission efficiency during high-speed data transmission.
Further, since the OFDM scheme uses overlapped frequency spectrums, it has excellent frequency utilization efficiency, is resistant to frequency selective fading, is resistant to multi-path fading, can reduce the effects of ISI (Inter-Symbol Interference) using the guard interval, can simply design the hardware structure of an equalizer, and is resistant to impulse noises.
