Space-time block codes (STBCs) from orthogonal designs proposed by Alamouti, and Tarokh-Jafarkhani-Calderbank have attracted considerable attention lately due to their fast maximum-likelihood (ML) decoding and full diversity. However, the maximum symbol transmission rate of an STBC from complex orthogonal designs for complex signals is only 3/4 for three(More)
A general space-frequency (SF) block code structure is proposed that can guarantee full-rate (one channel symbol per subcarrier) and full-diversity transmission in multiple-input multiple-output-orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (MIMO-OFDM) systems. The proposed method can be used to construct SF codes for an arbitrary number of transmit antennas,(More)
Ultra Wideband Signals and Systems in Communication Engineering is a well-developed, introductory book on UWB technologies and applications, which is a strong resource for both beginners who seek an introduction to UWB principles and their applications, and for researchers who wish to better understand the application of UWB technologies to practical(More)
In this letter, we propose a differential amplify-and-forward (AF) transmission scheme for a two-user cooperative communications system. By efficiently combining signals from both direct and relay links, the proposed scheme provides superior performance compared to those of direct transmissions with either differential detection or coherent detection. While(More)
We derive a closed-form symbol-error-rate (SER) formulation for the cooperation system with PSK and QAM signals. Moreover, two SER upper bounds are established to show the asymptotic performance of the cooperation protocol, in which one of them is tight at a high signal-to-noise ratio. Based on the SER performance analysis, we also determine the optimum(More)
In this paper, symbol-error-rate (SER) performance analysis and optimum power allocation are provided for uncoded cooperative communications in wireless networks with either decode-and-forward (DF) or amplify-and-forward (AF) cooperation protocol, in which source and relay send information to destination through orthogonal channels. In case of the DF(More)
This paper considers the problem of space-frequency code design for frequency-selective multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO) orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) modulation. We show that space-time codes achieving full diversity in quasistatic flat fading environment can be used to construct space-frequency codes that can achieve the maximum(More)
Multiple input multiple output (MIMO) communication systems with orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) modulation have a great potential to play an important role in the design of the next-generation broadband wireless communication systems. In this paper, we address the problem of performance analysis and code design for MIMO-OFDM systems when(More)
The existing constructions of space-time codes or modulation have mainly focused on two ideal situations: either quasi-static or rapid fading channels. In this paper, we consider the design of robust space-time modulation for time-correlated Rayleigh fading channels. We show that the space-time signals of square size achieving full diversity in quasi-static(More)
In this letter, a systematic design method to generate high-rate space-time block codes from complex orthogonal designs for any number of transmit antennas is proposed. The resulting designs have the best known rates. Two constructions with rates 2 3 and 5 8 are further illustrated for 6 and 7 transmit antennas, respectively.
