Statistical Properties of Eigen-Modes and Instantaneous Mutual Information in MIMO Time-Varying Rayleigh Channels  [PDF]
Shuangquan Wang,Ali Abdi
Mathematics , 2006,
Abstract: In this paper, we study two important metrics in multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) time-varying Rayleigh flat fading channels. One is the eigen-mode, and the other is the instantaneous mutual information (IMI). Their second-order statistics, such as the correlation coefficient, level crossing rate (LCR), and average fade/outage duration, are investigated, assuming a general nonisotropic scattering environment. Exact closed-form expressions are derived and Monte Carlo simulations are provided to verify the accuracy of the analytical results. For the eigen-modes, we found they tend to be spatio-temporally uncorrelated in large MIMO systems. For the IMI, the results show that its correlation coefficient can be well approximated by the squared amplitude of the correlation coefficient of the channel, under certain conditions. Moreover, we also found the LCR of IMI is much more sensitive to the scattering environment than that of each eigen-mode.
On the Capacity and Mutual Information of Memoryless Noncoherent Rayleigh-Fading Channels  [PDF]
Sebastien de la Kethulle de Ryhove,Ninoslav Marina,Geir E. Oien
Mathematics , 2006,
Abstract: The memoryless noncoherent single-input single-output (SISO) Rayleigh-fading channel is considered. Closed-form expressions for the mutual information between the output and the input of this channel when the input magnitude distribution is discrete and restricted to having two mass points are derived, and it is subsequently shown how these expressions can be used to obtain closed-form expressions for the capacity of this channel for signal to noise ratio (SNR) values of up to approximately 0 dB, and a tight capacity lower bound for SNR values between 0 dB and 10 dB. The expressions for the channel capacity and its lower bound are given as functions of a parameter which can be obtained via numerical root-finding algorithms.
The Influence of Adaptive Multicoding on Mutual Information and Channel Capacity for Uncertain Wideband CDMA Rayleigh Fading Channels  [PDF]
Richard J. Barton
Mathematics , 2006,
Abstract: We consider the problem of adaptive modulation for wideband DS-CDMA Rayleigh fading channels with imperfect channel state information (CSI). We assume a multidimensional signal subspace spanned by a collection of random spreading codes (multicoding) and study the effects of both the subspace dimension and the probability distribution of the transmitted symbols on the mutual information between the channel input and output in the presence of uncertainty regarding the true state of the channel. We develop approximations for the mutual information as well as both upper and lower bounds on the mutual information that are stated explicitly in terms of the dimension of the signal constellation, the number of resolvable fading paths on the channel, the current estimate of channel state, and the mean-squared-error of the channel estimate. We analyze these approximations and bounds in order to quantify the impact of signal dimension and symbol distribution on system performance.
Statistical Simulation Models for Cascaded Rayleigh Fading Channels  [PDF]
Yazan Ibdah,Yanwu Ding
Computer Science , 2012,
Abstract: In this paper, we present statistical simulators for cascaded Rayleigh fading channels with and without line-of-sight (LOS). These simulators contain two individual summations and are therefore easy to implement with lower complexity. Detailed statistical properties, including auto- and cross-correlations of the in-phase, quadrature components of the channels, envelopes, and squared envelopes, are derived. The time-average statistical properties and the corresponding variance are also investigated to justify that the proposed simulators achieve good convergence performance. Extensive Monte Carlo simulations are performed for various statistical properties to validate the proposed simulators. Results show that the simulators provide fast convergence to all desired statistical properties, including the probability density function (PDF), various auto- and cross-correlations, level crossing rate (LCR), and average fading duration (AFD). While various tests and measurements in dense scattering urban and forest environments indicate that mobile-to-mobile channels may experience cascaded Rayleigh fading, the proposed statistical models can be applied to simulate the underlying channels.
A Queueing Characterization of Information Transmission over Block Fading Rayleigh Channels in the Low SNR  [PDF]
Yunquan Dong,Pingyi Fan
Mathematics , 2014, DOI: 10.1109/TVT.2014.2307585
Abstract: Unlike the AWGN (additive white gaussian noise) channel, fading channels suffer from random channel gains besides the additive Gaussian noise. As a result, the instantaneous channel capacity varies randomly along time, which makes it insufficient to characterize the transmission capability of a fading channel using data rate only. In this paper, the transmission capability of a buffer-aided block Rayleigh fading channel is examined by a constant rate input data stream, and reflected by several parameters such as the average queue length, stationary queue length distribution, packet delay and overflow probability. Both infinite-buffer model and finite-buffer model are considered. Taking advantage of the memoryless property of the service provided by the channel in each block in the the low SNR (signal-to-noise ratio) regime, the information transmission over the channel is formulated as a \textit{discrete time discrete state} $D/G/1$ queueing problem. The obtained results show that block fading channels are unable to support a data rate close to their ergodic capacity, no matter how long the buffer is, even seen from the application layer. For the finite-buffer model, the overflow probability is derived with explicit expression, and is shown to decrease exponentially when buffer size is increased, even when the buffer size is very small.
Large N Analysis of Amplify-and-Forward MIMO Relay Channels with Correlated Rayleigh Fading  [PDF]
Joerg Wagner,Boris Rankov,Armin Wittneben
Mathematics , 2006,
Abstract: In this correspondence the cumulants of the mutual information of the flat Rayleigh fading amplify-and-forward MIMO relay channel without direct link between source and destination are derived in the large array limit. The analysis is based on the replica trick and covers both spatially independent and correlated fading in the first and the second hop, while beamforming at all terminals is restricted to deterministic weight matrices. Expressions for mean and variance of the mutual information are obtained. Their parameters are determined by a nonlinear equation system. All higher cumulants are shown to vanish as the number of antennas n goes to infinity. In conclusion the distribution of the mutual information I becomes Gaussian in the large n limit and is completely characterized by the expressions obtained for mean and variance of I. Comparisons with simulation results show that the asymptotic results serve as excellent approximations for systems with only few antennas at each node. The derivation of the results follows the technique formalized by Moustakas et al. in [1]. Although the evaluations are more involved for the MIMO relay channel compared to point-to-point MIMO channels, the structure of the results is surprisingly simple again. In particular an elegant formula for the mean of the mutual information is obtained, i.e., the ergodic capacity of the two-hop amplify-and-forward MIMO relay channel without direct link.
Performance of Gaussian Signalling in Non Coherent Rayleigh Fading Channels  [PDF]
Rasika Perera,Tony Pollock,Thushara Abhayapala
Mathematics , 2005,
Abstract: The mutual information of a discrete time memoryless Rayleigh fading channel is considered, where neither the transmitter nor the receiver has the knowledge of the channel state information except the fading statistics. We present the mutual information of this channel in closed form when the input distribution is complex Gaussian, and derive a lower bound in terms of the capacity of the corresponding non fading channel and the capacity when the perfect channel state information is known at the receiver.
Network coding for multicasting over Rayleigh fading multi access channels  [PDF]
Avi Zanko,Amir Leshem,Ephraim Zehavi
Computer Science , 2014,
Abstract: This paper examines the problem of rate allocation for multicasting over slow Rayleigh fading channels using network coding. In the proposed model, the network is treated as a collection of Rayleigh fading multiple access channels. In this model, rate allocation scheme that is based solely on the statistics of the channels is presented. The rate allocation scheme is aimed at minimizing the outage probability. An upper bound is presented for the probability of outage in the fading multiple access channel. A suboptimal solution based on this bound is given. A distributed primal-dual gradient algorithm is derived to solve the rate allocation problem.
On the Second-Order Statistics of Correlated Cascaded Rayleigh Fading Channels
Yawgeng A. Chau,Karl Y.-T. Huang
International Journal of Antennas and Propagation , 2012, DOI: 10.1155/2012/108534
Abstract: The second-order statistics of two correlated cascaded (double) Rayleigh fading channels are analyzed, where different relevant second-order cross-correlation functions of in-phase and quadrature components of the cascaded Rayleigh channels are derived. The level crossing rate (LCR) and average fade duration (AFD) of the cascaded channels are evaluated, and a single-integral form of the LCR is derived. Numerical results of the LCR and AFD are presented, and the effect of the correlation is illustrated.
Robust Estimation in Rayleigh Fading Channels Under Bounded Channel Uncertainties  [PDF]
Mehmet A. Donmez,Huseyin A. Inan,Suleyman S. Kozat
Mathematics , 2012,
Abstract: We investigate channel equalization for Rayleigh fading channels under bounded channel uncertainties. We analyze three robust methods to estimate an unknown signal transmitted through a Rayleigh fading channel, where we avoid directly tuning the equalizer parameters to the available inaccurate channel information. These methods are based on minimizing certain mean-square error criteria that incorporate the channel uncertainties into the problem formulations. We present closed-form solutions to the channel equalization problems for each method and for both zero mean and nonzero mean signals. We illustrate the performances of the equalization methods through simulations.
