This work considers multiple-inputmultiple-output (MIMO) communication systems using hierarchical modulation. A disadvantage of the maximum-likelihood (ML) MIMO detector is that its computational complexity increases exponentially with the number of transmit antennas. To reduce complexity, we propose a hierarchical modulation scheme to be used in MIMO transmission where base and enhancement layers are incorporated. In the proposed receiver, the base layer is detected first with a minimum mean square error (MMSE) detector which is followed by ML detection of the enhancement layer. Our results indicate that performance close to ML detection can be achieved with the proposed scheme, yet at a significantly lower complexity.

Chaotic demodulation under interference
Erdem, Özden; Demirbaş, Kerim; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2006)
Chaotically modulated signals are used in various engineering areas such as communication systems, signal processing applications, automatic control systems. Because chaotically modulated signal sequences are broadband and noise-like signals, they are used to carry binary signals especially in secure communication systems. In this thesis, a target tracking problem under interference at chaotic communication systems is investigated. Simulating the chaotic communication system, noise-like signal sequences are...
Adaptive modulation for completion time minimization in wireless broadcast networks
Yüksel Turgut, Ayşe Melda; Genc, Yasin (2017-01-01)
In this work we study the effect of hierarchical modulation on completion time minimization in wireless broadcast channels. Time needed to transmit all bits intended for a particular user is defined as its completion time. In this work we investigate minimizing the maximum completion time over all users in a broadcast channel using hierarchical modulation. We compare time division, opportunistic scheduling, and three different adaptive modulation schemes: rate adaptive hierarchical modulation assisted trans...
Diversity Analysis of Hierarchical Modulation in Wireless Relay Networks
Yalcyn, Ahmet Zahid; Yüksel Turgut, Ayşe Melda (2014-07-01)
In communication systems, hierarchical modulation is used to increase system robustness and to send different information flows simultaneously. However, when used in cooperative communication systems, hierarchical modulation is prone to error propagation, which is the most important problem that prevents the achievement of full diversity gains. Depending on the signal-to-noise ratio between the source and the relay, threshold digital relaying can be used to mitigate error propagation. Mitigating error propa...
Polarization diversity in channel modeling for mimo systems
Söker, Burak; Tuncer, Temel Engin; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2013)
In a multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) system, inter-antenna distances can be made large and uncorrelated signals can be transmitted and received when there is sufficient space at the transmitter (TX) and receiver (RX). When the antennas are closely spaced, diversity advantage is lost and communication performance degrades. In this case, polarization diversity can be used in order to decrease the correlation and improve communication performance. A detailed channel model, which includes both cross polar d...
MIMO Communication Systems Using Hierarchical Modulation
Ugur, Yigit; Yılmaz, Ali Özgür (2014-04-25)
This paper considers multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) communication systems using hierarchical modulation. The disadvantage of the maximum-likelihood (ML) receiver is that the computational complexity increases exponentially with the number of transmit antennas and the number of bits per modulation symbol. Using MIMO communication system with 16-ary hierarchical quadrature amplitude modulation (16-HQAM), we propose a receiver structure which can be an alternative to maximum-likelihood (ML) receiver. 16...
