A hybrid half-duplex/full-duplex transmission scheme in relay-aided cellular networks

In two-hop relay-aided cellular networks, both half-duplex (HD) and full-duplex (FD) transmission have been extensively studied. FD transmission can achieve twice throughput of HD transmission, but suffers from strong self-interference (SI), which may not be perfectly cancelled. In this paper, a hybrid HD/FD transmission scheme in a relay-aided cellular network is proposed, which ...

A tight approximate analytical framework for performance analysis of equal gain combining receiver over independent Weibull fading channels

In this paper, a method for approximating the probability distribution of sum of independent and identical Weibull random variables is adopted to analyze the performance of equal gain combiner (EGC) receiver over non-identical Weibull fading channel (WFC). Our main result is to derive a generalized expression of the probability density function (PDF) of the signal-to-noise ratio ...

Time domain equalization method for TS-OFDM signal under higher mobile environments

In higher time-varying fading channels, the signal quality of orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) technique would be degraded relatively due to the occurrence of inter-carrier interference (ICI).

Spatial degrees-of-freedom in large-array full-duplex: the impact of backscattering

The key challenge for in-band full-duplex wireless communication is managing self-interference. Many designs have employed spatial isolation mechanisms, such as shielding or multi-antenna beamforming, to isolate the self-interference waveform from the receiver. Because such spatial isolation methods confine the transmit and receive signals to a subset of the available space, the ...

Polar codes for non-identically distributed channels

We introduce new polar coding schemes for independent non-identically distributed parallel binary discrete memoryless channels. The first scheme is developed for the case where underlying channels are time invariant (the case of a deterministic channel parameters), while the other schemes deal with a scenario where underlying channels change based on a distribution (the case of ...

Analyzing the potential of full duplex in 5G ultra-dense small cell networks

Full-duplex technology has become an attractive solution for future 5th generation (5G) systems for accommodating the exponentially growing mobile traffic demand. Full duplex allows a node to transmit and receive simultaneously in the same frequency band, thus, theoretically, doubling the system throughput over conventional half-duplex systems. A key limitation in building a ...

To address this issue, many researchers ...

Pre-coded LDPC coding for physical layer security

This paper examines a simple and practical security preprocessing scheme for the Gaussian wiretap channel. A security gap based error rate is used as a measure of security over the wire-tap channel. In previous works, information puncturing and scrambling schemes based on low-density parity-check (LDPC) codes were employed to reduce the security gap. Unlike the previous works, our ...

EVM derivation of multicarrier signals to determine the operating point of the power amplifier considering clipping and predistortion

The high peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR) remains a major drawback of multicarrier modulations. Hence, the nonlinear characteristics of power amplifiers (PA) results in strong distortion and low power efficiency when multicarrier modulations are used. In this paper, the impact of the nonlinearities on the amplified multicarrier signal is analyzed, considering both PAPR limitation ...

A tractable approach to analyzing the energy-aware two-way relaying networks in the presence of co-channel interference

Under the impact of co-channel interference (CCI) at two source nodes and the relay, we investigate the performance of dual-hop amplify-and-forward (AF) relaying networks. In terms of energy harvesting, the power-constrained relay first scavenges energy from the received signal and CCI signals then amplifies them and forwards them to the destination. In particular, we provide ...

On the use of the channel second-order statistics in MMSE receivers for time- and frequency-selective MIMO transmission systems

Equalization of unknown frequency- and time-selective multiple input multiple output (MIMO) channels is often carried out by means of decision feedback receivers. These consist of a channel estimator and a linear filter (for the estimation of the transmitted symbols), interconnected by a feedback loop through a symbol-wise threshold detector. The linear filter is often a minimum ...
