Bit Error Rate is Convex at High SNR

Abstract

Motivated by a wide-spread use of convex optimization techniques, convexity properties of bit error rate of the maximum likelihood detector operating in the AWGN channel are studied for arbitrary constellations and bit mappings, which may also include coding under maximum-likelihood decoding. Under this generic setting, the pairwise probability of error and… (More)
