ABSTRACT In this paper, linear transceiver design for dual-hop nonregenerative [amplify-and-forward (AF)] MIMO-OFDM systems under channel estimation errors is investigated. Second order moments of channel estimation errors in the two hops are first deduced. Then based on the Bayesian framework, joint design of linear forwarding matrix at the relay and equalizer at the destination under channel estimation errors is proposed to minimize the total mean-square-error (MSE) of the output signal at the destination. The optimal designs for both correlated and uncorrelated channel estimation errors are considered. The relationship with existing algorithms is also disclosed. Moreover, this design is extended to the joint design involving source precoder design. Simulation results show that the proposed design outperforms the design based on estimated channel state information only.

    ABSTRACT: In this paper, we investigate the resource allocation for decode-and-forward (DF) relay-assisted SC-FDMA systems. Considering the subcarrier adjacency restriction of SC-FDMA, we present an optimal algorithm which refers to the set partitioning problem. In order to reduce the computational complexity of the optimal resource allocation, we also propose a suboptimal algorithm which is based on the greedy heuristic thinking. Simulation results show that the spectral efficiency of the optimal algorithm is much higher than that of the round robin algorithm. It is also shown that the greedy algorithm, which has much lower complexity, performs quite close to the optimal algorithm.

    ABSTRACT: In this paper, we design a robust relay transceiver for non-regenerative MIMO relay system where imperfect channel state information (CSI) is available at the relay node. The CSI errors of relay to destination link at the relay node are assumed to be norm bounded due to the quantization and feedback. And the worst-case design approach is consdiered. The robust optimization aims to minimize worst-case sum mean-square errors (MSE) with the power constraints at the relay under channel uncertainty. An iterative algorithm is proposed for the optimization. Further, the subproblems in the iteration are proven to be equivalent to semidefinite programming representations with efficient solutions. Simulation results verify the robustness of the proposed MIMO relay transceivers when compared to the non-robust design.

    ABSTRACT: In this paper, a pilot transmission scheme and a robust self-interference aware relay transceive filter for multipair two-way relaying are introduced. The bidirectional pairwise communications of multiple single-antenna nodes are simultaneously performed via an intermediate non-regenerative multi-antenna relay station and a pilot transmission scheme is proposed to obtain channel state information at the relay station and at the nodes. It is assumed that the nodes can use the available channel state information to subtract the back-propagated self-interference and the cases of perfect and imperfect self-interference cancellation are investigated. The relay station performs linear signal processing based on the estimated channels and a robust relay transceive filter approach is introduced which utilizes the fact that the nodes can perform self-interference cancellation. The proposed pilot transmission scheme requires less resources for channel estimation than conventional schemes and the proposed robust filter design increases the achievable sum rate in case of imperfect channel state information.
