In next generation wireless communication systems, packet-oriented data transmission will be implemented in addition to standard mobile telephony. We take an information-theoretic view of some simple protocols for reliable packet communication based on \Hybrid-ARQ", over a slotted multiple access Gaussian channel with fading and study their through-put(More)
This paper studies the throughput performance of hybrid automatic repeat request (HARQ) protocols over block fading Gaussian channels. It proposes new protocols that use the available feedback bit(s) not only to request a retransmission, but also to inform the transmitter about the instantaneous channel quality. An explicit protocol construction is given(More)
We consider multiaccess, broadcast, and interference channels with additive Gaussian noise. Although the set of rate pairs achievable by time-division multiple access (TDMA) is not equal to the capacity region, the TDMA achievable region converges to the capacity region as the power decreases. Furthermore, TDMA achieves the optimum minimum energy per bit.(More)
The capacity of the Gaussian cognitive interference channel, a variation of the classical two-user interference channel where one of the transmitters (referred to as cognitive) has knowledge of both messages, is known in several parameter regimes but remains unknown in general. This paper provides a comparative overview of this channel model as it proceeds(More)

This work studies cooperative communication strategies for Interference Channels with Generalized Feedback (IFC-GF). IFC-GF models wireless peer-to-peer networks where several source-destination pairs share the same channel and, because of the broadcast nature of the wireless channel, each transmission can be overheard by the other users. In this model, the(More)
An Interference Channel with Generalized Feedback (IFC-GF) models a wireless network where the sources can sense the channel activity. The signal overheard from the channel provides information about the activity of the other sources and thus furnishes the basis for cooperation. This two-part paper studies achievable strategies (Part I) and outer bounds(More)
We consider a nonergodic multiple-access Gaussian block-fading channel where a fixed number of independent and identically distributed (i.i.d.) fading coefficients affect each codeword. Variable-rate coding with input power constraint enforced on a per-codeword basis is examined. A centralized power and rate allocation policy is determined as a function of(More)
—The capacity region of the interference channel in which one transmitter non-causally knows the message of the other, termed the cognitive interference channel, has remained open since its inception in 2005. A number of subtly differing achievable rate regions and outer bounds have been derived, some of which are tight under specific conditions. In this(More)
