Abstract—The analysis of the multipleantenna capacity in the high regime has hitherto focused on the high slope (or maximum multiplexing gain), which quantifies the multiplicative increase as a function of the number of antennas. This traditional characterization is unable to assess the impact of prominent channel features since, for a majority of channels, the slope equals the minimum of the number of transmit and receive antennas. Furthermore, a characterization based solely on the slope captures only the scaling but it has no notion of the power required for a certain capacity. This paper advocates a more refined characterization whereby, as a function of �f, the high capacity is expanded as an affine function where the impact of channel features such as antenna correlation, unfaded components, etc., resides in the zeroorder term or power offset. The power offset, for which we find insightful closedform expressions, is shown to play a chief role for levels of practical interest. Index Terms—Antenna correlation, channel capacity, coherent communication, fading channels, high analysis, multiantenna arrays, Ricean channels.

This paper applies random matrix theory to obtain analytical characterizations of the capacity of correlated multiantenna channels. The analysis is not restricted to the popular separable correlation model, but rather it embraces a more general representation that subsumes most of the channel models that have been treated in the literature. For arbitrary signaltonoise ratios @ A, the characterization is conducted in the regime of large numbers of antennas. For the low and high regions, in turn, we uncover compact capacity expansions that are valid for arbitrary numbers of antennas and that shed insight on how antenna correlation impacts the tradeoffs among power, bandwidth, and rate.

The mutual information of independent parallel Gaussiannoise channels is maximized, under an average power constraint, by independent Gaussian inputs whose power is allocated according to the waterfilling policy. In practice, discrete signaling constellations with limited peaktoaverage ratios (mPSK, mQAM, etc.) are used in lieu of the ideal Gaussian signals. This paper gives the power allocation policy that maximizes the mutual information over parallel channels with arbitrary input distributions. Such policy admits a graphical interpretation, referred to as mercury/waterfilling, which generalizes the waterfilling solution and allows retaining some of its intuition. The relationship between mutual information of Gaussian channels and nonlinear minimum meansquare error (MMSE) proves key to solving the power allocation problem.

Abstract — We consider both the singleuser and the multiuser power allocation problems in MIMO systems, where the receiver side has the perfect channel state information (CSI), and the transmitter side has partial CSI, which is in the form of covariance feedback. In a singleuser MIMO system, we consider an iterative algorithm that solves for the eigenvalues of the optimum transmit covariance matrix that maximizes the rate. The algorithm is based on enforcing the KarushKuhnTucker (KKT) optimality conditions of the optimization problem at each iteration. We prove that this algorithm converges to the unique global optimum power allocation when initiated at an arbitrary point. We, then, consider the multiuser generalization of the problem, which is to find the eigenvalues of the optimum transmit covariance matrices of all users that maximize the sum rate of the MIMO multiple access channel (MIMOMAC). For this problem, we propose an algorithm that finds the unique optimum power allocation policies of all users. At a given iteration, the multiuser algorithm updates the power allocation of one user, given the power allocations of the rest of the users, and iterates over all users in a roundrobin fashion. Finally, we make several suggestions that significantly improve the convergence rate of the proposed algorithms. Index Terms — Multiuser MIMO, MIMO multiple access channel, partial CSI, covariance feedback, optimum power allocation.

Abstract—We consider the sum capacity of a multiinput multioutput (MIMO) multiple access channel (MAC) where the receiver has the perfect channel state information (CSI), while the transmitters have either no or partial CSI. When the transmitters have partial CSI, it is in the form of either the covariance matrix of the channel or the mean matrix of the channel. For the covariance feedback case, we mainly consider physical models that result in singlesided correlation structures. For the mean feedback case, we consider physical models that result in inphase received signals. Under these assumptions, we analyze the MIMOMAC from three different viewpoints. First, we consider a finitesized system. We show that the optimum transmit directions of each user are the eigenvectors of its own channel covariance and mean feedback matrices, in the covariance and mean feedback models, respectively. Also, we find the conditions under which beamforming is optimal for all users. Second, in the covariance feedback case, we prove that the region where beamforming is optimal for all users gets larger with the addition of new users into the system. In the mean feedback case, we show through simulations that this is not necessarily true. Third, we consider the asymptotic case where the number of users is large. We show that in both no and partial CSI cases, beamforming is asymptotically optimal. In particular, in the case of no CSI, we show that a simple form of beamforming, which may be characterized as an arbitrary antenna selection scheme, achieves the sum capacity. In the case of partial CSI, we show that beamforming in the direction of the strongest eigenvector of the channel feedback matrix achieves the sum capacity. Finally, we generalize our covariance feedback results to doublesided correlation structures in the Appendix. Index Terms—Multiuser MIMO, MIMO multiple access channel, partial CSI, covariance feedback, mean feedback, optimality of beamforming, large system analysis. I.

Transmit channel side information (CSIT) can significantly increase MIMO wireless capacity. Due to delay in acquiring this information, however, the timeselective fading wireless channel often induces incomplete, or partial, CSIT. In this paper, we first construct a dynamic CSIT model that takes into account channel temporal variation. It does so by using a potentially outdated channel measurement and the channel statistics, including the mean, covariance, and temporal correlation. The dynamic CSIT model consists of an effective channel mean and an effective channel covariance, derived as a channel estimate and its error covariance. Both parameters are functions of the temporal correlation factor, which indicates the CSIT quality. Depending on this quality, the model covers smoothly from perfect to statistical CSIT. We then summarize and further analyze the capacity gains and

Abstract — This paper finds the capacity of linear timeinvariant systems observed in additive Gaussian noise through a memoryless erasure channel. This problem requires obtaining the asymptotic spectral distribution of a submatrix of a nonnegative definite Toeplitz matrix obtained by retaining each column/row independently and with identical probability. We show that the optimum normalized power spectral density is the waterfilling solution for reduced signaltonoise ratio, where the gap to the actual signaltonoise ratio depends on both the erasure probability and the channel transfer function. We find asymptotic expressions for the capacity in the sporadic erasure and sporadic nonerasure regimes as well as the low and high signaltonoise regimes. I.

Abstract—This paper finds the capacity of singleuser discretetime channels subject to both frequencyselective and timeselective fading, where the channel output is observed in additive Gaussian noise. A coherent model is assumed where the fading coefficients are known at the receiver. Capacity depends on the firstorder distributions of the fading processes in frequency and in time, which are assumed to be independent of each other, and a simple formula is given when one of the processes is independent identically distributed (i.i.d.) and the other one is sufficiently mixing. When the frequencyselective fading coefficients are known also to the transmitter, we show that the optimum normalized power spectral density is the waterfilling power allocation for a reduced signaltonoise ratio (SNR), where the gap to the actual SNR depends on the fading distributions. Asymptotic expressions for high/low SNR and easily computable bounds on capacity are also provided. Index Terms—Additive Gaussian noise, channel capacity, coherent communications, frequencyflat fading, frequencyselective fading, orthogonal frequencydivision multiplexing (OFDM), random matrices, waterfilling.

We apply the theory of random Schrödinger operators to the analysis of multiusers communication channels similar to the Wyner model, that are characterized by shortrange intracell broadcasting. With H the channel transfer matrix, HH † is a narrowband matrix and in many aspects is similar to a random Schrödinger operator. We relate the percell sumrate capacity of the channel to the integrated density of states of a random Schrödinger operator; the latter is related to the top Lyapunov exponent of a random sequence of matrices via a version of the Thouless formula. Unlike related results in classical random matrix theory, limiting results do depend on the underlying fading distributions. We also derive several bounds on the limiting percell sumrate capacity, some based on the theory of random Schrödinger operators, and some derived from information theoretical considerations. Finally, we get explicit results in the highSNR regime for some particular cases.
