报告题目: MIMO Transceiver Designs and Optimization: Beyond Beamforming and Perfect Channel Information

(This is an  IEEE SPS DISTINGUISHED LECTURE)


报告摘要:As is well known, multiuser MIMO transceiver design and optimization techniques play a significant role in enhancing system throughput and efficiency in modern communications. This talk will describe the speaker’s fundamental endeavors on two key topics. The first topic considers physical-layer MISO multicasting, or common information broadcast to multiple users. In this context one usually adopts beamforming, optimized via a method called semidefinite relaxation (SDR). We do this rethinking: can we obtain better designs by altering the physical-layer transceiver architecture itself? We will introduce a novel transceiver strategy called stochastic beamforming (SBF)---which adopts a random-in-time beamforming strategy---that can outperform SDR-based beamforming and reveals new insights. The second topic considers robust unicast MISO beamforming under imperfect channel information. Such designs can be very challenging even from a mathematical optimization viewpoint. We will review or rediscover several popularized techniques that are established under the SDR framework. If time permits, some recent theoretical breakthrough will be described.
