Multiple-Access Space-Time Coding Testbed

Project ID: 026905
Funded under: FP6-IST


The focus of this deliverable is on the study of capacity regions (i.e., the sets of jointly achievable rates) of multiuser MIMO systems by means of analytic and simulation tools. Chapter 1 introduces the main concepts about the analytic tools used. Chapters 3 to 4 address the case of separately-correlated Rician fading for narrowband MIMO channels by considering the following topics: i) transmitted signal covariance optimization in the presence of intended and interfering signals; ii) second-order statistics of the mutual information in the presence of interference; iii) ergodic capacity region for a multiuser channel. Chapter 5 introduces interference functions to analyse capacity regions (and also other performance regions) by expressing them as sub-level sets of a certain interference function. Chapters 6 and 7 address the case of wideband MIMO channels with separately-correlated Rician fading and considers the following topics: i) capacity and optimum signal covariance matrix for a point-to-point MIMO link; ii) ergodic capacity region for a multiuser channel.
