—Orthogonal space-time block coding (STBC) has recently raised a lot of research interest due to its inherent mathematical feature that enables simple linear decoding at the receiver and provides full diversity over the multiple-input multiple output (MIMO) fading channel. In this paper, we derive general closed-form expressions for the Shannon capacity(More)
In this paper, we derive closed-form expressions for the average symbol error probability (SEP) of arbitrary rectangular I X J-ary quadrature amplitude modulation (QAM) in cooperative amplify-and-forward (A&F) relaying systems, when no direct line-of-sight exists between the source and the destination nodes and when the links(More)
We evaluate the outage performance in a three-terminal full-duplex relay channel that adopts a selective decode-and-forward protocol, taking relay self-interference into account. Previous work focused on coverage extension scenarios where direct source-destination transmissions are neglected or considered as interference. In this work, we account for the(More)
Far-field wireless power transfer (WPT) is a promising technique to resolve the painstaking power-charging problem inherent in various wireless terminals. This paper investigates the power transfer efficiency of the WPT segment in future communication systems in support of simultaneous power and data transfer, by means of analytically computing the(More)
