Chapter 8

Error Probability in Real-World MIMO Channels

Chapter 6 has dealt with the design of space-time codes in i.i.d. Rayleigh fading channels. However, as highlighted in Chapters 2 and 3, real-world channels span a large variety of propagation conditions and some environments may highly deviate from the i.i.d. Rayleigh fading scenario. It is thus of great importance to understand

• how codes developed under the i.i.d. Rayleigh assumption behave in more realistic propagation conditions, i.e., how these codes are affected by non-ideal propagation conditions,

• how a more adapted design criterion might significantly improve their performance.

In the Section 8.1, we start from a physical perspective to understand how the channel scattering ...
