  • Study of Distributed Spectrum Estimation Using Alternating Mixed Discrete-Continuous Adaptation

    This paper proposes a distributed alternating mixed discrete-continuous (DAMDC) algorithm to approach the oracle algorithm based on the diffusion strategy for parameter and spectrum estimation over sensor networks. A least mean squares (LMS) type algorithm that obtains the oracle matrix adaptively is developed and compared with the existing sparsity-aware and conventional algorithms. The proposed algorithm exhibits improved performance in terms of mean square deviation and power spectrum esti...

    Massive MIMO Systems: Signal Processing Challenges and Research Trends

    This article presents a tutorial on multiuser multiple-antenna wireless systems with a very large number of antennas, known as massive multi-input multi-output (MIMO) systems. Signal processing challenges and future trends in the area of massive MIMO systems are presented and key application scenarios are detailed. A linear algebra approach is considered for the description of the system and data models of massive MIMO architectures. The operational requirements of massive MIMO systems are di...

    Report on Two-Step Knowledge-Aided Iterative ESPRIT Algorithm

    In this work, we propose a subspace-based algorithm for direction-of-arrival (DOA) estimation, referred to as two-step knowledge-aided iterative estimation of signal parameters via rotational invariance techniques (ESPRIT) method (Two-Step KAI-ESPRIT), which achieves more accurate estimates than those of prior art. The proposed Two-Step KAI-ESPRIT improves the estimation of the covariance matrix of the input data by incorporating prior knowledge of signals and by exploiting knowledge of the s...

    Study of Distributed Conjugate Gradient Strategies for Distributed Estimation Over Sensor Networks

    This paper presents distributed conjugate gradient algorithms for distributed parameter estimation and spectrum estimation over wireless sensor networks. In particular, distributed conventional conjugate gradient (CCG) and modified conjugate gradient (MCG) are considered, together with incremental and diffusion adaptive solutions. The distributed CCG and MCG algorithms have an improved performance in terms of mean square error as compared with least--mean square (LMS)--based algorithms and a ...

    Adaptive and Iterative Multi-Branch MMSE Decision Feedback Detection Algorithms for MIMO Systems

    In this work, decision feedback (DF) detection algorithms based on multiple processing branches for multi-input multi-output (MIMO) spatial multiplexing systems are proposed. The proposed detector employs multiple cancellation branches with receive filters that are obtained from a common matrix inverse and achieves a performance close to the maximum likelihood detector (MLD). Constrained minimum mean-squared error (MMSE) receive filters designed with constraints on the shape and magnitude of ...

    Flexible Widely-Linear Multi-Branch Decision Feedback Detection Algorithms for Massive MIMO Systems

    This paper presents widely-linear multi-branch decision feedback detection techniques for large-scale multiuser multiple-antenna systems. We consider a scenario with impairments in the radio-frequency chain in which the in-phase (I) and quadrature (Q) components exhibit an imbalance, which degrades the receiver performance and originates non-circular signals. A widely-linear multi-branch decision feedback receiver is developed to mitigate both the multiuser interference and the I/Q imbalance ...

    Robust Low-Rank LCMV Beamforming Algorithms Based on Joint Iterative Optimization Strategies

    This chapter presents reduced-rank linearly constrained minimum variance (LCMV) algorithms based on the concept of joint iterative optimization of parameters. The proposed reduced-rank scheme is based on a constrained robust joint iterative optimization (RJIO) of parameters according to the minimum variance criterion. The robust optimization procedure adjusts the parameters of a rank-reduction matrix, a reduced-rank beamformer and the diagonal loading in an alternating manner. LCMV expression...

    Generalized Reduced-Rank Decompositions Using Switching and Adaptive Algorithms for Space-Time Adaptive Processing

    This work presents generalized low-rank signal decompositions with the aid of switching techniques and adaptive algorithms, which do not require eigen-decompositions, for space-time adaptive processing. A generalized scheme is proposed to compute low-rank signal decompositions by imposing suitable constraints on the filtering and by performing iterations between the computed subspace and the low-rank filter. An alternating optimization strategy based on recursive least squares algorithms is p...

    Design of Robust Adaptive Beamforming Algorithms Based on Low-Rank and Cross-Correlation Techniques

    This work presents cost-effective low-rank techniques for designing robust adaptive beamforming (RAB) algorithms. The proposed algorithms are based on the exploitation of the cross-correlation between the array observation data and the output of the beamformer. Firstly, we construct a general linear equation considered in large dimensions whose solution yields the steering vector mismatch. Then, we employ the idea of the full orthogonalization method (FOM), an orthogonal Krylov subspace based...

    Design of LDPC Codes using Multipath EMD Strategies and Progressive Edge Growth

    Low-density parity-check (LDPC) codes are capable of achieving excellent performance and provide a useful alternative for high performance applications. However, at medium to high signal-to-noise ratios (SNR), an observable error floor arises from the loss of independence of messages passed under iterative graph-based decoding. In this paper, the error floor performance of short block length codes is improved by use of a novel candidate selection metric in code graph construction. The propose...
