        In this paper, we address the linear precoding and decoding design problem for a bidirectional orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing communication system, between two multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) full-duplex (FD) nodes. The effects of hardware distortion as well as the channel state information error are taken into account. In the first step, we transform the available time-domain characterization of the hardware distortions for FD MIMO transceivers to the frequency domain, via a linear Fourier transformation. As a result, the explicit impact of hardware inaccuracies on the residual self-interference and inter-carrier leakage is formulated in relation to the intended transmit/received signals. Afterwards, linear precoding and decoding designs are proposed to enhance the system performance following the minimum-mean-squared-error and sum rate maximization strategies, assuming the availability of perfect or erroneous channel state information. The proposed designs are based on the application of alternating optimization over the system parameters, leading to a necessary convergence. Numerical results indicate that the application of a distortion-aware design is essential for a system with a high hardware distortion, or for a system with a low thermal noise variance.
