    Resource allocation for the multiple-access relay channels and OFDMA

    Within this article, the resource allocation problem for the multiple-access relay channel with orthogonal channel access is analysed. We propose a centralised optimisation framework that maximises the achieva...

    Performance of distributed beamforming for dense relay deployments in the presence of limited feedback information

    This paper studies the impact of quantized channel feedback on the performance of a (coherent) distributed beamforming (DBF) scheme. The analysis is done in the context of a wireless access network, and the goal ...

    Bounds on the capacity regions of half-duplex Gaussian MIMO relay channels

    This article considers uni- and bidirectional communication in the half-duplex Gaussian multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) relay channel. Assuming perfect channel state information at all nodes and the use ...

    Linear precoding in distributed MIMO systems with partial CSIT

    We study the transmission problem in a distributed multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) system consisting of several distributed transmitters and a common receiver. Assuming partial channel state information ...

    System-level performance of LTE-Advanced with joint transmission and dynamic point selection schemes

    In this article, we present a practical coordinated multipoint (CoMP) system for LTE-Advanced. In this CoMP system, cooperation is enabled for cell-edge users via dynamic switching between the normal single-ce...
