Hybrid beamforming is considered a key enabler to realize millimeter wave (mmWave) multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) communications due to its capability of considerably reducing the number of costly and power-hungry radio frequency chains in the transceiver. However, in mmWave MIMO orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (MIMO-OFDM) systems, hybrid beamforming design is challenging because the analog precoder and combiner are required to be shared across the whole employed bandwidth. In this paper, we propose closed-form solutions to the problem of designing the analog precoder/combiner in a mmWave MIMO-OFDM system by maximizing the upper bound of the spectral efficiency. The closed-form solutions facilitate the design of analog beamformers while guaranteeing state-of-art performance. Numerical results show that the proposed algorithm attains a slightly improved performance with much lower computational complexity compared to the considered benchmarks.
