Multiuser receivers improve the performance of spreadspectrum and antennaarray systems by exploiting the structure of the multiaccess interference when demodulating the signal of a user. Much of the previous work on the performance analysis of multiuser receivers has focused on their ability to reject worst case interference. Their performance in a powercontrolled network and the resulting user capacity are less wellunderstood. In this paper, we show that in a large system with each user using random spreading sequences, the limiting interference effects under several linear multiuser receivers can be decoupled, such that each interferer can be ascribed a level of effective interference that it provides to the user to be demodulated. Applying these results to the uplink of a single powercontrolled cell, we derive an effective bandwidth characterization of the user capacity: the signaltointerference requirements of all the users can be met if and only if the sum of the effective bandwidths of the users is less than the total number of degrees of freedom in the system. The effective bandwidth of a user depends only on its own SIR requirement, and simple expressions are derived for three linear receivers: the conventional matched filter, the decorrelator, and the MMSE receiver. The effective bandwidths under the three receivers serve as a basis for performance comparison.

Let x �1 � denote the square of the largest singular value of an n × p matrix X, all of whose entries are independent standard Gaussian variates. Equivalently, x �1 � is the largest principal component variance of the covariance matrix X ′ X, or the largest eigenvalue of a pvariate Wishart distribution on n degrees of freedom with identity covariance. Consider the limit of large p and n with n/p = γ ≥ 1. When centered by µ p = � √ n − 1 + √ p � 2 and scaled by σ p = � √ n − 1 + √ p��1 / √ n − 1 + 1 / √ p � 1/3 � the distribution of x �1 � approaches the Tracy–Widom lawof order 1, which is defined in terms of the Painlevé II differential equation and can be numerically evaluated and tabulated in software. Simulations showthe approximation to be informative for n and p as small as 5. The limit is derived via a corresponding result for complex Wishart matrices using methods from random matrix theory. The result suggests that some aspects of large p multivariate distribution theory may be easier to apply in practice than their fixed p counterparts. 1. Introduction. The

Previous studies have shown that singleuser systems employingelement antenna arrays at both the transmitter and the receiver can achieve a capacity proportional to , assuming independent Rayleigh fading between antenna pairs. In this paper, we explore the capacity of dualantennaarray systems under correlated fading via theoretical analysis and raytracing simulations. We derive and compare expressions for the asymptotic growth rate of capacity with antennas for both independent and correlated fading cases; the latter is derived under some assumptions about the scaling of the fading correlation structure. In both cases, the theoretic capacity growth is linear in but the growth rate is 1020% smaller in the presence of correlated fading. We analyze our assumption of separable transmit/receive correlations via simulations based on a raytracing propagation model. Results show that empirical capacities converge to the limit capacity predicted from our asymptotic theory even at moderate n=16. We present results for both the cases when the transmitter does and does not know the channel realization.

This paper considers estimating a covariance matrix of p variables from n observations by either banding or tapering the sample covariance matrix, or estimating a banded version of the inverse of the covariance. We show that these estimates are consistent in the operator norm as long as (log p)/n → 0, and obtain explicit rates. The results are uniform over some fairly natural wellconditioned families of covariance matrices. We also introduce an analogue of the Gaussian white noise model and show that if the population covariance is embeddable in that model and wellconditioned, then the banded approximations produce consistent estimates of the eigenvalues and associated eigenvectors of the covariance matrix. The results can be extended to smooth versions of banding and to nonGaussian distributions with sufficiently short tails. A resampling approach is proposed for choosing the banding parameter in practice. This approach is illustrated numerically on both simulated and real data. 1. Introduction. Estimation

We consider a spiked population model, proposed by Johnstone, whose population eigenvalues are all unit except for a few fixed eigenvalues. The question is to determine how the sample eigenvalues depend on the nonunit population ones when both sample size and population size become large. This paper completely determines the almost sure limits for a general class of samples. 1

This paper considers regularizing a covariance matrix of p variables estimated from n observations, by hard thresholding. We show that the thresholded estimate is consistent in the operator norm as long as the true covariance matrix is sparse in a suitable sense, the variables are Gaussian or subGaussian, and (log p)/n → 0, and obtain explicit rates. The results are uniform over families of covariance matrices which satisfy a fairly natural notion of sparsity. We discuss an intuitive resampling scheme for threshold selection and prove a general crossvalidation result that justifies this approach. We also compare thresholding to other covariance estimators in simulations and on an example from climate data. 1. Introduction. Estimation
