A higher network throughput, a minimized delay and reliable communications are some of many goals that wireless communication standards, such as the fifthgeneration (5G) standard and beyond, intend to guarantee for its customers. Hence, many key innovations are currently being proposed and investigated by researchers in the academic and industry circles to fulfill these goals. This dissertation investigates some of the proposed techniques that aim at increasing the spectral efficiency, enhancing the energy efficiency, and enabling low latency wireless communications systems. The contributions lay in the evaluation of the performance of several proposed receiver architectures as well as proposing novel digital signal processing (DSP) algorithms to enhance the performance of radio transceivers. Particularly, the effects of several radio frequency (RF) impairments on the functionality of a new class of wireless transceivers, the full-duplex transceivers, are thoroughly investigated. These transceivers are then designed to operate in a relaying scenario, where relay selection and beamforming are applied in a relaying network to increase its spectral efficiency. The dissertation then investigates the use of greedy algorithms in recovering orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) signals by using sparse equalizers, which carry out the equalization in a more efficient manner when the low-complexity single tap OFDM equalizer can no longer recover the received signal due to severe interferences. The proposed sparse equalizers are shown to perform close to conventional optimal and dense equalizers when the OFDM signals are impaired by interferences caused by the insertion of an insufficient cyclic prefix and RF impairments.
