This paper studies distributed optimization schemes for multicell joint beamforming and power allocation in time-division-duplex (TDD) multicell downlink systems where only limited-capacity intercell information exchange is permitted. With an aim to maximize the worst-user signal-to-interference-and-noise ratio (SINR), we devise a hierarchical iterative algorithm to optimize downlink beamforming and intercell power allocation jointly in a distributed manner. The proposed scheme is proved to converge to the global optimum. For fast convergence and to reduce the burden of intercell parameter exchange, we further propose to exploit previous iterations adaptively. Results illustrate that the proposed scheme can achieve near-optimal performance even with a few iterations, hence providing a good tradeoff between performance and backhaul consumption. The performance under quantized parameter exchange is also examined. [less ▲]

This paper discusses the performance of Golden codes in a hybrid satellite/terrestrial system framework employing dual polarized MIMO-OFDM transmissions. Although the use of Golden codes in satellite and terrestrial scenarios has been studied independently, a realistic performance assessment must involve both components taking into account the relative delay between their reception. In fact, this work exploits the relative delay to create a multipath scenario and further improve the coding gain of the Golden codes, which is otherwise fixed. This is made possible by utilizing the Golden code in a Space-Frequency coding framework instead of the traditional Space-Time paradigm. The separation between the subcarriers constituting a Golden code is shown to be central to the coding gain enhancement and an algorithm to choose this separation is provided. [less ▲]

Coordinated beamforming can significantly improve the performance of cellular systems through joint interference management. Unfortunately, such beamforming optimization problems are typically NP-hard in multicell scenarios, making heuristic beamforming the only feasible choice in practice. This paper proposes a new branch-reduce-and-bound algorithm that solves such optimization problems globally, with a complexity suitable for benchmarking and analysis. Compared to prior work, the framework handles robustness to uncertain intercell interference and numerical analysis shows higher efficiency. [less ▲]

We explore a novel approach to perform decoding-order optimization in the vertical Bell Labs layered space-time (V-BLAST) architecture. Allowing for simultaneous transmission of multiple, separately encoded data streams, the V-BLAST transmit-receive scheme applies to the uplink of a multi-user communication system. A multi-antenna receiver decodes data streams successively, dealing with inter-stream interference by means of cancelling and nulling; interference from previously decoded streams is cancelled by subtraction, and remaining interference is nulled by linear equalization. The order in which the streams are decoded can have a noticeable impact on system performance. We consider the optimization of a fixed decoding order in fast Rayleigh fading, based on long-term channel-fading parameters. For a wide range of performance measures, we show that the fast-fading ordering problem can be treated as a classical linear assignment problem, allowing a solution using existing, efficient algorithms.

We present a novel approach for joint transmitter-receiver design in the uplink of a wireless multiple-input multiple-output communication system. It applies to, e.g., a fast-fading frequency-division duplexing system with periodic pilot signaling from each user - a scenario hindering transmitter optimization based on channel state information (CSI), while CSI-based receiver optimization is possible. Each user multiplexes data onto several, independently coded subchannels processed by a linear precoder, and detected at a base station (BS) employing zero-forcing decision feedback (DF) equalization, eliminating all interference prior to detection. We target the problem of jointly designing fixed linear precoders for all users as well as a fixed detection order for the DF receiver based on long-term channel statistics. We propose an efficiently implementable alternating-minimization technique that is verified numerically to converge fast, and to outperform the popular V-BLAST scheme - a computationally more complex ordered-DF receiver with limited applicability by requiring equal-rate subchannels in the system.

Finding the least squares (LS) solution s to a system of linear equations Hs = y where H, y are given and s is a vector of binary variables, is a well known NP-hard problem. In this paper, we consider binary LS problems under the assumption that the coefficient matrix H is also unknown, and lies in a given uncertainty ellipsoid. We show that the corresponding worst-case robust optimization problem, although NP-hard, is still amenable to semidefinite relaxation (SDR)-based approximations. However, the relaxation step is not obvious, and requires a certain problem reformulation to be efficient. The proposed relaxation is motivated using Lagrangian duality and simulations suggest that it performs well, offering a robust alternative over the traditional SDR approaches for binary LS problems.

The decision feedback (DF) transceiver, combining linear precoding and DF equalization, can establish point-to-point communication over a wireless multiple-input multiple-output channel. Matching the DF-transceiver design parameters to the channel characteristics can improve system performance, but requires channel knowledge. We consider the fast-fading channel scenario, with a receiver capable of tracking the channel-state variations accurately, while the transmitter only has long-term, channel-distribution information. The receiver design problem given channel-state information is well studied in the literature. We focus on transmitter optimization, which amounts to designing a statistical precoder to assist the channel-tailored DF equalizer. We develop a design framework that encompasses a wide range of performance metrics. Common cost functions for precoder optimization are analyzed, thereby identifying a structure of typical cost functions. Transmitter design is approached for typical cost functions in general, and we derive a precoder design formulation as a convex optimization problem. Two important subclasses of cost functions are considered in more detail. First, we explore a symmetry of DF transceivers with a uniform subchannel rate allocation, and derive a simplified convex optimization problem, which can be efficiently solved even as system dimensions grow. Second, we explore the tractability of a certain class of mean square error based cost functions, and solve the transmitter design problem with a simple algorithm that identifies the convex hull of a set of points in R2. The behavior of DF transceivers with optimal precoders is investigated by numerical means. [less ▲]

The impact of transmission design and spatial correlation on the symbol error rate (SER) is analyzed for multi-antenna communication links. The receiver has perfect channel state information (CSI), while the transmitter has either statistical or no CSI. The transmission is based on orthogonal space-time block codes (OSTBCs) and linear precoding. The precoding strategy that minimizes the worst-case SER is derived for the case when the transmitter has no CSI. Based on this strategy, the intuitive result that spatial correlation degrades the SER performance is proved mathematically. In the case when the transmitter knows the channel statistics, the correlation matrix is assumed to be jointly-correlated (a generalization of the Kronecker model). The eigenvectors of the SER-optimal precoding matrix are shown to originate from the correlation matrix and the remaining power allocation is a convex problem. Equal power allocation is SER-optimal at high SNR. Beamforming is SER-optimal at low SNR, or for increasing constellation sizes, and its optimality range is characterized. A heuristic low-complexity power allocation is proposed and evaluated numerically. Finally, it is proved analytically that receive-side correlation always degrades the SER. Transmit-side correlation will however improve the SER at low to medium SNR, while its impact is negligible at high SNR. [less ▲]
