In this letter, we focus on the coverage probability of a double-intelligent reflecting surface (IRS) assisted wireless network and study the impact of multiplicative beamforming gain and correlated Rayleigh fading. In particular, we obtain a novel closed-form expression of the coverage probability of a single-input single-output (SISO) system assisted by two large IRSs while being dependent on the corresponding arbitrary reflecting beamforming matrices (RBMs) and large-scale statistics in…

Impact of Phase-Noise and Spatial Correlation on Double-RIS-Assisted Multiuser MISO Networks
The analysis shows that phase-noise can severely degrade the performance when users do not have direct links to both RISs, and can only be served via the double-reflection link, and it is shown that high spatial correlation at RISs is essential for high achievable rates.


Outage Probability Analysis and Minimization in Intelligent Reflecting Surface-Assisted MISO Systems
This letter study an IRS-assisted multiple-input single-output (MISO) system where a base station with multiple antennas arranged in a uniform rectangular array serves a single-antenna user with the help of an IRS with multiple elements arranged in an URA to reveal important design insights.
Asymptotic Analysis of Max-Min Weighted SINR for IRS-Assisted MISO Systems with Hardware Impairments
The deterministic equivalent analysis enables the derivation of the asymptotic weighted maximum-minimum SINR with HIs by jointly optimizing the HIs-aware receiver, the transmit power, and the reflect beamforming matrix (RBM).
Intelligent Reflecting Surface-Assisted MU-MISO Systems With Imperfect Hardware: Channel Estimation and Beamforming Design
This work considers a general IRS-assisted multi-user (MU) multiple-input single-output (MISO) system with imperfect channel state information (CSI) and correlated Rayleigh fading, and introduces an advantageous channel estimation (CE) method for such systems accounting for the HWIs.
Cooperative Double-IRS Aided Communication: Beamforming Design and Power Scaling
Simulation results validate that the performance of deploying two cooperative IRSs is significantly better than that of deploying one IRS given a sufficient total number of IRS elements, and show that deploying two Cooperative IRSs with in total can yield a power gain of order.
Deterministic Equivalent Performance Analysis of Time-Varying Massive MIMO Systems
Numerical results depict that the proposed achievable SINRs (MMSE/RZF) are more efficient than simpler solutions (MRC/MRT) in delayed CSIT conditions, and yield a higher prediction at no special computational cost due to their deterministic nature.
Coverage, Probability of SNR Gain, and DOR Analysis of RIS-Aided Communication Systems
The results show that using the RIS can expand the coverage, increase the SNR gain, and reduce latency of the links and the delay outage rate of the RIS in achieving ultra-reliable low-latency transmissions.
Intelligent Reflecting Surface Enhanced Wireless Network via Joint Active and Passive Beamforming
Simulation results demonstrate that an IRS-aided single-cell wireless system can achieve the same rate performance as a benchmark massive MIMO system without using IRS, but with significantly reduced active antennas/RF chains.
Intelligent Reflecting Surface: Practical Phase Shift Model and Beamforming Optimization
A practical phase shift model that captures the phase-dependent amplitude variation in the element-wise reflection design of intelligent reflecting surface (IRS) is proposed and substantial performance gains are unveiled by the proposed beamforming optimization based on the practical phaseshift model as compared to the conventional ideal model.

A general framework to evaluate the coverage and rate performance in mmWave cellular networks is proposed, and the results show that dense mmWave networks can achieve comparable coverage and much higher data rates than conventional UHF cellular systems, despite the presence of blockages.
