  1. (set theory) Zermelo-Fraenkel set theory, without the axiom of choice.
  2. (telecommunications, signal processing) zero force

      In the case of the ZF detector, we suppress the interference among the transmit streams by multiplying the received signal vector y with the Moore-Penrose pseudo-inverse of the channel matrix []
    • 2010, Dayan Adionel Guimaraes, Digital Transmission (page 348)
      However, due to its simplicity, ZF equalization is a good choice when the channel is known and fixed, and also when there is no frequency notch in the channel frequency response []
    • 2013, Academic Press Library in Signal Processing (page 308)
      Thus, the importance of the upper bound is in showing that even in the most optimistic case, the achievable rate cannot exceed the ZF rates by more than 10%.
