In this thesis, an efficient hybrid beamforming architecture together with a novel spatio-temporal receiver processing is proposed for single-carrier (SC) mm-wave wideband massive MIMO channels in time-domain duplex (TDD) mode. The design of two-stage beamformer is realized by using a virtual sectorization via second-order channel statistics based user grouping. The novel feature of the proposed architecture is that the effect of both inter-group-interference (due to non-orthogonality of virtual angular sectors) and the inter-symbol-interference (due to SC wideband transmission) are taken into account. While designing the analog beamformer, the dimension reduction and proper subspace (beamspace) construction problems are examined (by exploiting the joint angle-delay sparsity map and power profile of the multi-user channel) based on which a highly efficient spatio-temporal digital receiver processing is proposed. Furthermore, a least square type channel estimator, based on a proper subspace projection via radio frequency (RF) processing, is proposed. It is shown to achieve a remarkable robustness to pilot contamination with a significant reduction in pilot length. Moreover, the effect of utilizing inaccurate estimates for central angle, the angular spread (AS) and channel covariance matrices (CCMs) on achievable information rate (AIR) is analyzed. Finally, adaptive methods for the reconstruction of the analog beamformer are proposed for a mobile channel where estimates are erroneous. Proposed methods are shown to decrease the computational complexity significantly, while decreasing the performance slightly.

HYBRID BEAMFORMING WITH TWO BIT RF PHASE SHIFTERS IN SINGLE GROUP MULTICASTING
Demir, Özlem Tuğfe; Tuncer, Temel Engin (2016-03-25)
In this paper, an efficient hybrid beamforming architecture combining analog and digital beamforming is proposed to reduce the number of radio frequency (RF) chains. It provides a good compromise between the higher degree of freedom of digital beamforming and hardware cost and complexity. In this hybrid system, two bit RF phase shifters are used as analog beamformers due to the fact that this enables the conversion of the combinatorial optimization problem to a continuous programming formulation. The overal...
