—This paper considers a wireless communication system with multiple transmit and receive antennas, i.e., a multiple input multiple output (MIMO) channel. The objective is to design the transmitter according to an imperfect channel estimate, where the errors are explicitly taken into account to obtain a robust design under the maximin or worst case(More)
— In this paper, we study the design of the transmitter in the downlink of a multiuser and multiantenna wireless communications system, considering the realistic scenario where only an imperfect estimate of the actual channel is available at both communication ends. Precisely, the actual channel is assumed to be inside an uncertainty region around the(More)
— In this letter, we study spatial Tomlinson-Harashi-ma precoding (STHP) from an information theoretic point of view encompassing both the single and the multiuser scenarios. Since the performance of any communications precoding scheme relies on the quality of the channel state information (CSI) that is made available at the transmitter side, in this work(More)
— In this paper we address the problem of the design of a power allocation strategy for an Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) system. We assume no spatial diversity at the transmitter and receiver, that is, a Single-Input-Single-Output (SISO) channel is considered. The goal is to allocate all the available power at the transmitter among the(More)
Providing femto-access points (FAPs) with computational capabilities will allow (either total or partial) offloading of highly demanding applications from smart-phones to the so called femto-cloud. Such offloading promises to be beneficial in terms of battery saving at the mobile terminal (MT) and/or in latency reduction in the execution of applications.(More)
Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) has been recently established for several systems such as HIPERLAN/2 and Digital Video and Audio Broadcasting. The success of this modulation is due to the easy implementation of the modulator and demodulator, including the equalization process. Moreover, in last years also increasing interest has been put(More)
— This paper addresses the joint design of transmit and receive beamvectors for a multicarrier MIMO channel within the general and powerful framework of convex optimization theory. From this perspective, a great span of design criteria can be easily accommodated and efficiently solved even though closed-form expressions may not be available. Among other(More)
