Multiuser diversity is a form of diversity inherent in a wireless network, provided by independent timevarying channels across the different users. The diversity benefit is exploited by tracking the channel fluctuations of the users and scheduling transmissions to users when their instantaneous channel quality is near the peak. The diversity gain increases with the dynamic range of the fluctuations and is thus limited in environments with little scattering and/or slow fading. In such environments, we propose the use of multiple transmit antennas to induce large and fast channel fluctuations so that multiuser diversity can still be exploited. The scheme can be interpreted as opportunistic beamforming and we show that true beamforming gains can be achieved when there are sufficient users, even though very limited channel feedback is needed. Furthermore, in a cellular system, the scheme plays an additional role of opportunistic nulling of the interference created on users of adjacent cells. We discuss the design implications of implementing this scheme in a complete wireless system.

We consider a multiuser multipleinput multipleoutput (MIMO) Gaussian broadcast channel (BC), where the transmitter and receivers have multiple antennas. Since the MIMO BC is in general a nondegraded BC, its capacity region remains an unsolved problem. In this paper, we establish a duality between what is termed the “dirty paper” achievable region (the Caire–Shamai achievable region) for the MIMO BC and the capacity region of the MIMO multipleaccess channel (MAC), which is easy to compute. Using this duality, we greatly reduce the computational complexity required for obtaining the dirty paper achievable region for the MIMO BC. We also show that the dirty paper achievable region achieves the sumrate capacity of the MIMO BC by establishing that the maximum sum rate of this region equals an upper bound on the sum rate of the MIMO BC.

Abstract—We define a duality between Gaussian multipleaccess channels (MACs) and Gaussian broadcast channels (BCs). The dual channels we consider have the same channel gains and the same noise power at all receivers. We show that the capacity region of the BC (both constant and fading) can be written in terms of the capacity region of the dual MAC, and vice versa. We can use this result to find the capacity region of the MAC if the capacity region of only the BC is known, and vice versa. For fading channels we show duality under ergodic capacity, but duality also holds for different capacity definitions for fading channels such as outage capacity and minimumrate capacity. Using duality, many results known for only one of the two channels can be extended to the dual channel as well. Index Terms—Broadcast channel (BC), channel capacity, duality, fading channels, multipleinput multipleoutput (MIMO) systems, multipleaccess channel (MAC). I.

This paper considers the vector Gaussian broadcast channel where a single transmitter with multiple antennas sends independent information to multiple receivers. An achievable rate region is derived by decomposing the broadcast channel into a series of singleuser channels with noncausal side information. The side information may be completely presubtracted using precoding techniques. A practical trellis precoding method is presented. Trellis precoding can be viewed as a generalization of the TomlinsonHarashima precoder. By taking into account the entire noncausal sideinformation sequence, a trellis precoder gives an additional shaping gain up to 1.53dB compared to a Tomlinson precoder. I.

Abstract — This paper examines communication between a cluster of closelypacked nodes with another cluster of closelypacked nodes. The nodes within each cluster are separated by small distances, relative to the distance between the two clusters. The effect on capacity of cooperation between nodes in the transmitting cluster and cooperation between nodes in the receiving cluster is investigated. I. System Model Consider a system with two transmitters and two receivers, as shown in Fig. 1. TX 1 wishes to communicate to RX 1, and TX 2 wishes to communicate to RX 2. It is assumed that the distance between each of the four transmitterreceiver pairs is the same, and each channel gain is normalized to have amplitude one. Thus, the channels between each transmitterreceiver pair are identical, except for a random uniformly distributed phase. The channel can be written as: jθ1 y1 x1 n1 e e

We consider a twouser multiple input multiple output (MIMO) Gaussian broadcast channel (BC), where the transmitter has t transmit antennas and receivers have r1 ; r2 antennas respectively. Since the MIMO broadcast channel is in general a nondegraded broadcast channel, its capacity region remains an unsolved problem. In this paper, we establish a duality between what is termed the \dirty paper" region (or the CostaCaireShamaiYu achievable region) [5, 7] for the MIMO broadcast channel and the capacity region of the the MIMO multipleaccess channel (MAC), which is easy to compute. Using this duality, we greatly reduce the computation complexity required for obtaining the dirty paper achievable region for the MIMO BC. The duality also enables us to translate previously known results for the MIMO MAC (like iterative waterlling [7]) to the MIMO BC. We show that the dirty paper achievable region achieves the sumrate capacity of the MIMO BC by establishing that the sumrate point in this region equals an upperbound on the sum rate of the MIMO BC.

Abstract — The Gaussian vector multiple access channel with a sumpower constraint across all users, rather than the usual individual power constraint on each user, has recently been shown to be the dual of a Gaussian vector broadcast channel [1] [2]. Further, a numerical algorithm for the sum capacity under the sum power constraint has been proposed in [3]. This paper proposes a different algorithm for this problem based on a dual decomposition approach. The proposed algorithm works in the Lagrangian dual domain; it is based on a modified iterative waterfilling algorithm for the multiple access channel; and it is guaranteed to converge to the sum capacity in all cases. This spectrum optimization problem for the sumpower multiple access channel is also applicable to the optimal power allocation problem for an OFDM system with correlated noise. I.

We consider scheduling strategies for multiantenna and multibeam cellular wireless systems for high speed packet data services on the downlink. We establish a fundamental connection between the stability region of the queuing system and the set of feasible transmission rates which provides the basis for the scheduling algorithm proposed in this paper. Transmission using adaptive steerable beams and fixed sector beams are considered and average delay versus throughput results are obtained through simulations for the proposed scheduling algorithm in each case. While in single antenna systems multiuser diversity gains are achieved by the scheduling algorithms that transmit to a single user in each scheduling interval, our results show that with multiple antennas, transmitting to a carefully chosen subset of users has superior performance. The multiantenna scheduling problem is closely related to the problem of coordinated scheduling for transmission through multiple base stations, where a user can receive signals from several base stations simultaneously. We consider the special case when three singleantenna base stations are allowed to cooperate and transmit to the users in the triangular region between the base stations and propose scheduling strategies that demonstrate significant gains.

Abstract — For a multiple antenna broadcast channel, the sumrate capacity achieving transmit strategy requires the centralized transmitter to simultaneously communicate with multiple receivers. The objective of this paper is to design an implementable sumrate capacity achieving transmit strategy that uses a combination of beamforming and coding for known interference. For a twouser Gaussian broadcast channel, results indicate that in the context of typical QAM constellations, with Mt = 2 and Mr = 1, there is significant gain in sumrate capacity over an approach that uses only beamforming. 1 I.

Abstract — The paper provides a proof of the converse for the capacity region of the Gaussian MIMO broadcast channel under total average transmit power constraint. The proof uses several ideas from earlier works on the problem including the recent converse proof by Weingarten, Steinberg and Shamai. First the duality between Gaussian multiple access and broadcast channels is employed to show that every point on the boundary of the dirty paper coding region can be represented as the optimal solution to a convex optimization problem. Using the optimality conditions for this convex problem, a degraded broadcast channel is constructed for each point. It is then shown that the capacity region for this degraded broadcast channel contains the capacity region of the original channel. Moreover, the same point lies on the boundary of the dirty paper coding region for this degraded channel. Finally, the standard entropy power inequality is used to show that this point lies on the boundary of the capacity region of the degraded channel as well and consequently it is on the boundary of the capacity region of the original channel.
