    Maximum Likelihood (ML) equalization for Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) over time- and frequency- selective channels is analyzed in this paper. An approximate expression for bit error rate (BER) performance of the ML equalizer with a limited number of taps is developed, which subsumes the matched filter bound (MFB) equalization performance as a special case, and which saves on intensive time-consuming empirical simulations. Numerical simulations validate our approximate expression.
