A New Beamformer Design Method for Multi-Group Multicasting by Enforcing Constructive Interference

Demir, Özlem Tuğfe

In this paper, we propose a new multi-group multi-cast beamforming design method for phase shift keying (PSK) modulated signals. Quality of service (QoS)-aware optimization is considered where the aim is to minimize transmission power of multiple-antenna base station under the QoS constraints of single-antenna users. In this paper, we show that symbol-level beamforming scheme proposed in the literature is not an effective design method for multi-group multicasting and modify it using rotated constellation approach in order to reduce transmission power. Proposed method enforces the known interference in a constructive manner such that the received symbol at each user is inside the correct decision region for any set of symbols. Hence, designed beamformers can be utilized throughout a transmission-frame rather than symbol-by-symbol basis. An alternating direction method of multipliers (ADMM) algorithm is presented for the proposed design problem and closed-form update equations are derived for the steps of the ADMM algorithm. Simulation results show that the proposed method decreases the transmission power significantly compared to the conventional and symbol-level beamforming.


Improved ADMM-Based Algorithm for Multi-Group Multicast Beamforming in Large-Scale Antenna Systems
Demir, Özlem Tuğfe; Tuncer, Temel Engin (2018-08-07)
In this paper, we consider beamformer design for multi-group multicasting where a common message is transmitted to the users in each group. We propose a novel effective alternating direction method of multipliers (ADMM) formulation in order to reduce the computational complexity of the existing state-of-the-art algorithm for multi-group multicast beamforming with per-antenna power constraints. The proposed approach is advantageous for the scenarios where the dimension of the channel matrix is less than the ...
A Nonlinear Detector for Uplink SC-FDE mm-Wave Hybrid Massive MIMO under Hardware Impairments
Salman, Murat Babek; Güvensen, Gökhan Muzaffer (2021-06-01)
In this paper, we propose a detector structure for fully connected hybrid massive MIMO systems with transceiver impairments at user equipments. In literature, memoryless compensation of nonlinear effects at the receiver side is recently proposed for systems employing frequency domain equalization. However, in these studies, the system model is restricted to be symbol sampled, where pulse shaping and fractional delays in channel impulse response (CIR) are not taken into consideration. However, memory effects...
Performance of discrete dipole approximation for prediction of amplitude and phase of electromagnetic scattering by particles
Ayranci, Isil; Vaillon, Rodolphe; Selçuk, Nevin (2007-01-01)
Electromagnetic scattering provides useful signatures for nonintrusive particle characterization. Scattered wave which carries characteristic information about particles is identified completely by its intensity, polarization state and phase. Recent developments in measurement techniques have enabled measurement of phase of the scattered wave which is a source of additional information about particles. In the present study, accuracy of discrete dipole approximation (DDA) in predicting amplitude and phase of...

This paper presents an implementation of discrete adjoint solver using an automatic differentiation tool for a two-dimensional Reynolds Averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS) finite volume solver. Moreover, automatic differentiation tool is also utilized calculating flux Jacobian required by implicit finite volume solver. The developed RANS adjoint solver is computationally efficient and accurate. In the present implementation, the time required for the calculation of adjoint variables is comparable to the time requ...

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...
