On the degrees-of-freedom of the MIMO interference channel

Abstract

The high signal-to-noise ratio capacity of the symmetric MIMO interference channel is characterized as a function of the interference-to-noise ratio. This work is a multiple antenna extension of the degrees of freedom expressions derived by Etkin et al. for the single antenna case. This characterization considers the case where the number of receive antennas is greater than or equal to the number of transmit antennas and shows the number of degrees of freedom available for communication as a function of log(INR)/log(SNR).
