Space-Time Coding with Partial Transmit Channel Knowledge
In Chapter 1, we have outlined that MIMO systems essentially deliver four gains: diversity gain, spatial multiplexing gain, coding gain and array gain. So far, we have extensively covered the first three gains.
• In Chapter 1 and 6, we have shown how space-time coding architectures could exploit spatial multiplexing and diversity gains in i.i.d. Rayleigh fading channels.
• In Chapter 5, we have illustrated via the mutual information and the diversity-multiplexing trade-off that those gains are significantly affected by the channel correlations and the K-factor under a uniform input power allocation.
• In Chapter 8, we have formalized the impact of channel correlations and K-factor ...
