Full-Duplex Radio: Theory, Design, and Applications

Wireless full-duplex has the potential to double the spectral efficiency of every radio. In the future 5G era, advanced full-duplex communication schemes will enable high throughput applications with simple spectrum management. This special issue publishes novel contributions to the theory, design, and development of full-duplex radio, as well as important applications of full-duplex radios in wireless communications and networks.

    Self-interference suppression with imperfect channel estimation in a shared-antenna full-duplex massive MU-MIMO system

    In this paper, we consider a shared-antenna full-duplex massive MU-MIMO system and prove that the self-interference (SI) at the base station (BS) can be suppressed, though the direct-path SI exists and the sig...
