The Capacity of the Noncoherent Rician Fading Channel∗

Abstract

Transmission of information over a discrete-time memoryless Rician fading channel is considered where neither the receiver nor the transmitter knows the fading coefficients. First the structure of the capacity-achieving input signals is investigated when the input is constrained to have limited peakedness. It is shown that uniform phase is optimal if there… (More)
