Multiple-antenna cooperative wireless systems: A diversity-multiplexin tradeoff perspective

2007-10-01
We consider a general multiple-antenna network with multiple sources, multiple destinations, and multiple relays in terms of the diversity-multiplexing tradeoff (DMT). We examine several subcases of this most general problem taking into account the processing capability of the relays (half-duplex or full-duplex), and the network geometry (clustered or nonclustered). We first study the multiple-antenna relay channel with a full-duplex relay to understand the effect of increased degrees of freedom in the direct link. We find DMT upper bounds and investigate the achievable performance of decode-and-forward (DF), and compress.;and-forward (CF) protocols. Our results suggest ' that while DF is DMT optimal when all terminals have one antenna each, it may not maintain its good performance when the degrees of freedom in the direct link are increased, whereas CF continues to perform optimally. We also study the multiple-antenna relay channel with a half-duplex relay. We show that the half-duplex DMT behavior can significantly be different from the full-duplex case. We find that CF is DMT optimal for half-duplex relaying as well, and is the first protocol known to achieve the half-duplex relay DMT. We next study the multiple-access relay channel (MARC) DMT. Finally, we investigate a system with a single source-destination pair and multiple relays, each node with a single antenna, and show that even under the ideal assumption of full-duplex relays and a clustered network, this virtual multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) system can never fully mimic a real MIMO DMT. For cooperative systems with multiple sources and multiple destinations the same limitation remains in effect.

Diversity-Multiplexing Tradeoff for the MIMO Static Half-Duplex Relay
Leveque, Olivier; Vignat, Christophe; Yüksel Turgut, Ayşe Melda (2010-07-01)
In this paper, we investigate the diversity-multiplexing tradeoff (DMT) of the multiple-antenna (MIMO) static half-duplex relay channel. A general expression is derived for the DMT upper bound, which can be achieved by a compress-and-forward protocol at the relay, under certain assumptions. The DMT expression is given as the solution of a minimization problem in general, and an explicit expression is found when the relay channel is symmetric in terms of number of antennas, i.e., the source and the destinati...
Cooperative Multiple-Access in Fading Relay Channels
Yılmaz, Ayşen (2006-06-15)
Virtual antenna arrays can be constructed via relaying even in the case that there is insufficient physical space or other resources for multiple antennae on wireless nodes. When there is a multiple access scenario, relaying offers a variety of ways to establish communication between source and destination nodes. We will compare a scheme based on space division multiple access to previously studied time division based ones. We observe that space division improves especially the ergodic capacity.
Diversity-multiplexing tradeoff in cooperative wireless systems
Yüksel Turgut, Ayşe Melda; Erkip, Elza (2006-01-01)
We first examine a system with a single source-destination pair and two relays, each node with a single antenna, and explore whether this virtual multi-input multi-output (MIMO) system can mimic a physical MIMO in terms of diversity-multiplexing tradeoff (DMT). We show that even under the idealistic assumption of full-duplex relays and a clustered network, the relay system can never fully mimic a real MIMO DMT, it is multiplexing gain limited. The limitation comes from the fact that source and destination a...
Diversity-multiplexing tradeoff in multiple-antenna relay systems
Yüksel Turgut, Ayşe Melda; Erkip, Elza (2006-01-01)
We study the diversity-multiplexing tradeoff (DMT) for the full-duplex relay channel when the source and the destination have multiple antennas, and the relay has I or more. We find DMT upper bounds and investigate the achievable performance of decode-and-forward (DF), partial decode-and-forward (PDF), and compress-and-forward (CF) protocols. We study the effect of increased degrees of freedom in the direct link and the source-relay channel when multiple antennas are introduced. Our results suggest that whi...
Diversity-multiplexing tradeoff in half-duplex relay systems
Yüksel Turgut, Ayşe Melda; Erkip, Elza (2007-01-01)
We study the multiple antenna half-duplex relay channel from the diversity-multiplexing tradeoff (DMT) perspective. We find performance upper bounds and show that compress-and-forward (CF) protocol achieves the upper bound. We argue that although it is hard to find the exact DMT expressions for decode-and-forward (DF) type protocols, they would be suboptimal in the multiple antenna case. We also study the multiple-access relay channel (MARC), and evaluate how CF works in this system. Our results show that C...
