Recently, a two-stage beamforming concept under the name of Joint Spatial Division and Multiplexing (JSDM), a kind of divide-and-conquer approach based on statistical user-grouping, has been proposed to enable simplified system operations in massive MIMO. In this study, we establish a general framework on the reduced dimensional channel state information (CSI) estimation and pre-beamformer design for frequency-selective massive MIMO systems employing single-carrier (SC) modulation in time division duplex (TDD) mode by exploiting the joint angle-delay domain channel sparsity in millimeter (mm) wave frequencies (which is often characterized with limited scattering and hence correlatedness in the spatial domain). The main contribution of this work is threefold. First, by an inspiration from the user-grouping idea (in the JSDM framework), the reduced rank minimum mean square error (RR-MMSE) instantaneous CSI estimator, based on generic subspace projection taking the joint angle-delay power profile into account, is derived for spatially correlated wideband MIMO channels. Second, the statistical prebeamformer design is considered for frequency-selective SC massive MIMO channels. We examine the dimension reduction and subspace (beamspace) construction on which the RR-MMSE estimation can be realized as accurately as possible. The generalized eigenvector beamspace (GEB) appears to be a nearly optimal pre-beamformer when the eigenspaces of different resolvable multi-path components are assumed to be nearly orthogonal. Finally, a spatio-temporal domain correlator type reduced rank channel estimator, as an approximation of the RR-MMSE estimate, is obtained by carrying out least square (LS) estimation in a proper reduced dimensional beamspace. It is observed that the proposed techniques show remarkable robustness to the pilot interference (or contamination) with a significant reduction in pilot overhead thanks to the subspace projection.

Demirbaş, Kerim (Informa UK Limited, 2011-01-01)
A new suboptimum state filtering and prediction scheme is proposed for nonlinear discrete dynamic systems with Gaussian or non-Gaussian disturbance and observation noises. This scheme is an online estimation scheme for real-time applications. Furthermore, this scheme is very suitable for state estimation under either constraints imposed on estimates or missing observations. State and observation models can be any nonlinear functions of the states, disturbance and observation noises as long as noise samples ...
A state prediction scheme for discrete time nonlinear dynamic systems
Demirbaş, Kerim (Informa UK Limited, 2007-01-01)
A state prediction scheme is proposed for discrete time nonlinear dynamic systems with non-Gaussian disturbance and observation noises. This scheme is based upon quantization, multiple hypothesis testing, and dynamic programming. Dynamic models of the proposed scheme are as general as dynamic models of particle predictors, whereas the nonlinear models of the extended Kalman (EK) predictor are linear with respect to the disturbance and observation noises. The performance of the proposed scheme is compared wi...
