Efficient User Grouping for Hybrid Beamforming in Single Carrier Wideband Massive MIMO Channels

In this paper, three types of user grouping algorithms in which our own performance metric is utilized are investigated for single carrier downlink wideband spatially correlated massive MIMO channels by using hybrid beamforming structure motivated by the joint spatial division and multiplexing (JSDM) framework. The user grouping procedure consists of two stages. Internally, our own metric called as the achievable information rate (AIR) is calculated given a user grouping input by considering both inter-group and inter-symbol interferences. This metric value shows how efficient the given user grouping input is for the user scenario in the system. Externally, three different user grouping algorithms use this value to find the most efficient user grouping for the user scenario in the system. Based on the simulation results, AIR metric based user grouping via merge and split algorithm gives the nearly optimal user grouping set for the hybrid beamforming structure compared to the fully digital block zero forcing with multi-carrier frequency bound.

Robust spread spectrum type communication with M-ary quasi orthogonal signaling for wireless fading channels M-ary yaklaşik dikgen sinyalleşme ile yayili spektruma sahip sistemler için etkin telsiz haberleşme
Güvensen, Gökhan Muzaffer; Tanık, Yalçın; Yılmaz, Ali Özgür (2012-07-09)
In this paper, a receiver architecture with reduced complexity is proposed for spread spectrum type communication with M-ary quasi orthogonal signaling. The proposed structure comprises of the channel and code matched filtering (MF) concatenated with a reduced state maximum likelihood sequence estimation (MLSE) type processing at symbol rate. MLSE, which takes the interference caused by nonideal cross- and autocorrelations of the spreading codes and multi-path channel into account, is directly applied to th...
An Efficient Hybrid Beamforming and Channel Acquisition for Wideband mm-Wave Massive MIMO Channels
Kurt, Anıl; Güvensen, Gökhan Muzaffer (2019-01-01)
In this paper, 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 beamformers 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 sec...
An adaptive, energy-aware and distributed fault-tolerant topology-control algorithm for heterogeneous wireless sensor networks
Deniz, Fatih; Bagci, Hakki; KÖRPEOĞLU, İBRAHİM; Yazıcı, Adnan (2016-07-01)
This paper introduces an adaptive, energy-aware and distributed fault-tolerant topology control algorithm, namely the Adaptive Disjoint Path Vector (ADPV) algorithm, for heterogeneous wireless sensor networks. In this heterogeneous model, we have resource-rich supernodes as well as ordinary sensor nodes that are supposed to be connected to the supernodes. Unlike the static alternative Disjoint Path Vector (DPV) algorithm, the focus of ADPV is to secure supernode connectivity in the presence of node failures...
Efficient Edge-Preserving Stereo Matching
Cigla, Cevahir; Alatan, Abdullah Aydın (2011-11-13)
A computationally efficient stereo matching algorithm is introduced providing high precision dense disparity maps via local aggregation approach. The proposed algorithm exploits a novel paradigm, namely separable successive weighted summation (SWS) among horizontal and vertical directions with constant operational complexity, providing effective connected 2D support regions based on local color similarities. The intensity adaptive aggregation enables crisp disparity maps which preserve object boundaries and...

Yılmaz, Ayhan Ozan; Baykal, Nazife; Department of Health Informatics (2015)
This study proposes an infrastructure with a global workflow management algorithm in order to interconnect facilities, reporting units and radiologists on a single access interface. This infrastructure is enhanced by a reporting workflow optimization algorithm (RWOA) to determine the optimum match between the inspection and radiologist in terms of experience, subspeciality, response time and workload parameters. RWOA increases the efficiency of the reporting process by decreasing access time to medical images a...
