—Optimized opportunistic multicast scheduling (OMS) is studied for cellular networks, where the problem of efficiently transmitting a common set of fountain-encoded data from a single base station to multiple users over quasi-static fading channels is examined. The proposed OMS scheme better balances the tradeoff between multiuser diversity and multicast(More)
Optimized opportunistic multicast scheduling (OMS) has been studied previously by the authors for homogeneous cellular networks, where the problem of efficiently transmitting a common set of data from a single base station to multiple users that have identical channel statistics was examined. It has been demonstrated that OMS can achieve significant(More)
This work proposes the use of a unitary modulation scheme to enhance physical layer secrecy in multi-antenna wire­ less systems. The proposed scheme takes advantage of having only channel state information at the transmitter (CSIT) but not at the receiver and the eavesdropper. With CSIT, the transmitter can first take the LQ or singular value decomposition(More)
