Capacity and error probability analysis for orthogonal space-time block codes over fading channels

  author={Hao Zhang and T. Aaron Gulliver},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications},
The capacity and error probability of orthogonal space-time block codes (STBCs) are considered for pulse-amplitude modulation/phase shift keying/quadrature-amplitude modulation (PAM/PSK/QAM) in fading channels. The approach is based on an equivalent scalar additive white Gaussian noise channel with a channel gain proportional to the Frobenius norm of the matrix channel for the STBC. Using this effective channel, capacity and probability of error expressions are derived for PSK/PAM/QAM… CONTINUE READING
