In multiple-antenna broadcast channels, unlike point-to-point multiple-antenna channels, the multiuser capacity depends heavily on whether the transmitter knows the channel coefficients to each user. For instance, in a Gaussian broadcast channel with M transmit antennas and n single-antenna users, the sum rate capacity scales like Mloglogn for large n if… (More)

Recently, several coding methods have been proposed to reduce the high peak-to-mean envelope ratio (PMEPR) of multicarrier signals. It has also been shown that with probability one, the PMEPR of any random codeword chosen from a symmetric quadrature amplitude modulation/phase shift keying (QAM/PSK) constellation is logn for large n, where n is the number of… (More)

—This paper considers the effect of spatial correlation between transmit antennas on the sum-rate capacity of the MIMO Gaussian broadcast channel (i.e., downlink of a cellular system). Specifically, for a system with a large number of users n, we analyze the scaling laws of the sum-rate for the dirty paper coding and for different types of beamforming… (More)

In a broadcast channel in which one transmitter serves n receivers, the capacity region highly depends on the amount of channel state information (CSI) at the transmitter. Assuming that the transmitter knows the SNR of all the receivers, opportunistic strategy maximizes the throughput (sum-rate) of the system. It is usually assumed that CSI is accurate,… (More)

In this paper, we derive the scaling laws of the sum rate for fading MIMO Gaussian broadcast channels using time-sharing to the strongest user, dirty paper coding (DPC), and beamforming when the number of users (receivers) n is large. Throughout the paper, we assume a fix average transmit power and consider a block fading Rayleigh channel. First, we show… (More)

Opportunistic secondary spectrum usage has the potential to dramatically increase spectral efficiency and rates of a network of secondary cognitive users. In this work we consider a cognitive network: n pairs of cognitive transmitter and receiver wish to communicate simultaneously in the presence of a single primary transmitter-receiver link. We assume each… (More)

In this paper, we obtain the scaling laws of the sum-rate capacity of a MIMO X-channel, a 2 independent sender, 2 independent receiver channel with messages from each transmitter to each receiver, at high signal to noise ratios (SNR). The X-channel has sparked recent interest in the context of cooperative networks and it encompasses the interference,… (More)

— This paper studies the fundamental limits of MIMO broadcast channels from a high level, determining the sum-rate capacity of the system as a function of system paramaters, such as the number of transmit antennas, the number of users, the number of receive antennas, and the total transmit power. The crucial role of channel state information at the… (More)

Multicarrier signals often exhibit large peak to mean envelope power ratios (PMEPR) which can be problematic in practice. In this paper, we study adjusting the sign of each subcamer in order to reduce the PMEPR of a multi-carrier signal with n subcarriers. Considering that any randomly chosen codeword has PMEPR of l o g n with probability one and for large… (More)
