We examine and compare the different types of linear transmit processing for multiple input, multiple output systems, where we assume that the receive filter is independent of the transmit filter contrary to the joint optimization of transmit and receive filters. We can identify three filter types similar to receive processing: the transmit matched filter,(More)
To achieve the full multiplexing gain of MIMO interference networks at high SNRs, the interference from different transmitters must be aligned in lower-dimensional subspaces at the receivers. Recently a distributed “max-SINR” algorithm for precoder optimization has been proposed that achieves interference alignment for sufficiently high SNRs. We show that(More)
We derive the transmit Wiener filter for DS-CDMA systems which depends upon the noise power at the receivers. We show that the transmit Wiener filter converges to the transmit matched filter and the transmit zero-forcing filter for low and high signal-to-noiseratio, respectively. Simulation results show the superiority of the transmit Wiener filter compared(More)
We present a mean-square-error (MSE) duality between the broadcast channel and the multiple access channel for multiantenna users communicating with a single base station. We introduce three levels of the duality which allow for a problem specific customization with different computational complexities and resolutions. The first level preserves the(More)
We study distributed algorithms for updating transmit precoding matrices for a two-user Multi-Input/Multi-Output (MIMO) interference channel. Our objective is to maximize the sum rate with linear Minimum Mean Squared Error (MMSE) receivers, treating the interference as additive Gaussian noise. An iterative approach is considered in which given a set of(More)
Achieving high spectral efficiencies in wireless networks requires the ability to mitigate and manage the associated interference. This becomes especially important in networks where many transmitters and receivers are randomly placed, so that in the absence of coordination a particular receiver is likely to encounter significant interference from a(More)
In this article, we discuss distributed resource allocation schemes in which each transmitter determines its allocation autonomously, based on the exchange of interference prices. These schemes have been primarily motivated by the common model for spectrum sharing in which a user or service provider may transmit in a designated band provided that they abide(More)
Preface It was in the summer of 2002 when the European Union launched the Sixth Framework Research Programme. One of the expected outcomes of this multibillion Euro initiative was Structuring, that is, tackling the fragmentation of European research on a large scale. The concept of the so-called Network of Excellence (NoE) was born, which was designed to(More)
