—In this paper, we study the joint allocation of three types of resources, namely, power, subcarriers and relay nodes, in multi-relay assisted dual-hop cooperative OFDM systems. All the relays adopt the amplify-and-forward protocol and assist the transmission from the source to destination simultaneously but on orthogonal subcarriers. The objective is to(More)
—We present a general method for constructing radar transmit pulse trains and receive filters for which the radar point-spread function in delay and Doppler, given by the cross-ambiguity function of the transmit pulse train and the pulse train used in the receive filter, is essentially free of range sidelobes inside a Doppler interval around the(More)
—Joint power allocation, relay selection, and sub-carrier assignment are critical and challenging for achieving full benefits of OFDM based cooperative relay networks. In this paper, we study such a problem in a dual-hop multi-relay OFDM system with an objective of maximizing the spectral efficiency under a total power constraint. The system consists of a(More)
For an improper complex signal x, its complementary covariance Exx T is not zero and thus it carries useful statistical information about x. Widely linear processing exploits Hermitian and complementary covariance to improve performance. In this paper we extend the existing theory of widely linear complex Kalman filters (WLCKF) and unscented WLCKFs [1]. We(More)
Energy efficient wireless communication is important for battery constrained mobile devices. For mobile devices in a cellular system, uplink power consumption dominates the wireless power budget because of RF power requirements for reliable transmission over long distances. In this work we developed a low-complexity subcarrier-power allocation and relay(More)
—For a zero mean, proper, complex random vector x, the Hermitian covariance Exx H is a complete second-order characterization. However, if the vector x is improper, it is correlated with its complex conjugate, meaning Exx T = 0. This improper or complementary covariance must be accounted for in a complete second-order characterization. The improper(More)
