— 1 In this paper, pilot-assisted transmission over Gauss-Markov Rayleigh fading channels is considered. A simple scenario, where a single pilot signal is transmitted every T symbols and T − 1 data symbols are transmitted in between the pilots, is studied. First, it is assumed that binary phase-shift keying (BPSK) modulation is employed at the transmitter.(More)
In this paper, cognitive transmission under quality of service (QoS) constraints is studied. In the cognitive radio channel model, it is assumed that the secondary transmitter sends the data at two different average power levels, depending on the activity of the primary users, which is determined by channel sensing performed by the secondary users. A(More)
In this paper, performance of cognitive transmission over time-selective flat fading channels is studied under quality of service (QoS) constraints and channel uncertainty. Cognitive secondary users (SUs) are assumed to initially perform channel sensing to detect the activities of the primary users, and then attempt to estimate the channel fading(More)
—In this paper, we investigate effective capacity by modeling a cognitive radio broadcast channel with one secondary transmitter (ST) and two secondary receivers (SRs) under quality-of-service constraints and interference power limitations. We initially describe three different cooperative channel sensing strategies with different hard-decision combining(More)
In this paper, throughput and energy efficiency of cognitive multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) systems operating under quality-of-service (QoS) constraints, interference limitations, and imperfect channel sensing, are studied. It is assumed that transmission power and covariance of the input signal vectors are varied depending on the sensed activities(More)
In this paper, the performance of cognitive transmission under quality of service (QoS) constraints and interference limitations is studied. Cognitive secondary users are assumed to initially perform sensing over multiple frequency bands (or equivalently channels) to detect the activities of primary users. Subsequently, they perform transmission in a single(More)
— In this paper, pilot-assisted transmission over time-selective flat fading channels is studied. It is assumed that noncausal and causal Wiener filters are employed at the receiver to perform channel estimation with the aid of training symbols sent periodically by the transmitter. For both filters, the variances of estimate errors are obtained from the(More)
—Recently, communications systems that are both energy efficient and reliable are under investigation. In this paper, we concentrate on an energy-detection-based transmission scheme where a communication scenario between a transmitter with one antenna and a receiver with significantly many antennas is considered. We assume that the receiver initially(More)
