Constant envelope (CE) precoding is a very recently developed transmission approach for large antenna array systems, where each antenna is restricted to transmit CE signals and only phases are used to shape desired information signals at the receiver. CE precoding is proposed as a solution for circumventing the high peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR)(More)
This paper considers robust constant envelope (CE) precoding with antenna-subset selection (AS) in a large-scale MISO downlink scenario where only imperfect channel state information at the transmitter (CSIT) is available. CE precoding is a recently proposed transmission scheme that enables the use of cheap but highly power-efficient power amplifiers, while(More)
This paper considers lattice decoding for multi-input multi-output (MIMO) detection under PAM constellations. A key aspect of lattice decoding is that it relaxes the symbol bound constraints in the optimal maximum-likelihood (ML) detector for faster implementations. It is known that such a symbol bound relaxation may lead to a damaging effect on the system(More)
In this paper, we study amplify-and-forward (AF) schemes in two-hop one-way relay networks. In particular, we consider multigroup multicast transmission between long-distance users. Assuming that perfect channel state information is perceived, our goal is to design the AF process so that the max-min-fair signal-to-interference-plus-noise ratio (SINR) is(More)
This paper concentrates on a robust transmit optimization problem for the multiuser multi-input single-output (MISO) downlink scenario and under inaccurate channel state information (CSI). This robust problem deals with a general-rank transmit covariance design and follows a safe rate-constrained formulation under spherically bounded CSI uncertainties.(More)
This paper considers constant envelope (CE) precoding in single-user MISO downlink systems. CE precoding is a transmission scheme recently proposed for very large antenna arrays, in which the use of highly power-efficient RF amplifiers is a requirement. There are two important issues in CE precoding, namely the characterization of the region of all possible(More)
This paper describes a new approximate maximum-likelihood (ML) MIMO detection approach by studying a Lagrangian dual relaxation (LDR) of ML. Unlike many existing relaxed ML methods, the proposed LDR employs a discrete domain for the problem formulation. We find that the proposed LDR exhibits an intriguing relationship to the lattice decoders (LDs) and the(More)
This paper deals with the multiuser MIMO downlink beamforming scenario. In this scenario, a popular approach for designing the beamformer is the weighted minimum mean square error (WMMSE) approach for sum rate maximization. This work considers the WMMSE method from an implementation perspective, where we take into account practical factors - such as linear(More)
This is a companion technical report of the main manuscript “Semidefinite Relaxation and Approximation Analysis of a Beamformed Alamouti Scheme for Relay Beamforming Networks”. The report serves to give detailed derivations of Lemma 1-2 in the main manuscript, which are too long to be included in the latter. In addition, more simulation results are(More)
