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.

Abstract — We characterize the capacityachieving input covariance for multiantenna channels known instantaneously at the receiver and in distribution at the transmitter. Our characterization, valid for arbitrary numbers of antennas, encompasses both the eigenvectors and the eigenvalues. The eigenvectors are found for zeromean channels with arbitrary fading profiles and a wide range of correlation and keyhole structures. For the eigenvalues, in turn, we present necessary and sufficient conditions as well as an iterative algorithm that exhibits remarkable properties: universal applicability, robustness and rapid convergence. In addition, we identify channel structures for which an isotropic input achieves capacity. Index Terms — Capacity, MIMO, input optimization, fading, antenna correlation, Ricean fading, keyhole channel.

Abstract—We consider the sequential transmission of a stream of messages over a blockfading multiinputmultioutput (MIMO) channel. A new message arrives at the beginning of each coherence block, and the decoder is required to output each message sequentially, after a delay of T coherence blocks. In the special case when T = 1, the setup reduces to the quasistatic fading channel. We establish the optimal diversitymultiplexing tradeoff (DMT) in the high signaltonoiseratio (SNR) regime, and show that it equals T times the DMT of the quasistatic channel. The converse is based on utilizing the delay constraint to amplify a local outage event associated with a message, globally across all the coherence blocks. This approach appears to be new. We propose two coding schemes that achieve the optimal DMT. The first scheme involves interleaving of messages, such that each message is transmitted across T consecutive coherence blocks. This scheme requires the knowledge of the delay constraint at both the encoder and decoder. Our second coding scheme involves a sequential tree code and is delayuniversal i.e., the knowledge of the decoding delay is not required by the encoder. However, in this scheme we require the coherence blocklength to increase as log (SNR), in order to attain the optimal DMT. Finally, we discuss the case when multiple messages arrive at uniform intervals within each coherence period. Through a simple example we exhibit the suboptimality of interleaving, and propose another scheme that achieves the optimal DMT.
