In this manuscript, an exact symbol error rate analysis of orthogonal frequency division multiplexing system is presented in the presence of carrier frequency offset over two wave with diffuse power (TWDP) fading channel. Both Binary Phase Shift Keying and Quadrature Phase Shift Keying modulation techniques are considered in this study over TWDP channel which contains Rayleigh, Rician and two ray fading as its special cases. The results are validated by means of Monte Carlo simulations and also verified from the benchmark results available in the literature.
