ABSTRACT In a two-way system where two users transmit data to each other, limited feedback beamforming is a simple method to supply channel state information to the transmitter (CSIT) for a multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO) system when channel reciprocity is unavailable. For analytical tractability, most existing papers assume the existence of an ideal fixed-rate feedback channel to assist the transmitter to adapt to instantaneous channel conditions. The relationship between the feedback rate and data rate is typically analyzed in a unidirectional manner. In reality, judicious resource allocation to transmitting feedback and data leads to a tradeoff between the effective forward and reverse data rates. In this paper, we represent the achievable rate by effective SNRs, and we present a framework to analyze the tradeoff. We find that the forward and reverse rate tradeoff can be decomposed into two local tradeoffs, resulting from the resource allocation policy of each user. The local tradeoff region for each user is found in closed-form, whereas the overall tradeoff region is approximated for the special case when the two users have equal hardware configurations.

    ABSTRACT: We consider a cognitive radio system where a secondary network shares the spectrum band with a primary network. Aiming at improving the frequency efficiency of the secondary network, we set a multiantenna relay station in the secondary network to perform two-way relaying. Three linear processing schemes at the relay station based on zero forcing, zero forcing-maximum ratio transmission, and minimum mean square error criteria are derived to guarantee the quality of service of primary users and to suppress the intrapair and interpair interference among secondary users (SUs). In addition, the transmit power of SUs is optimized to maximize the sum rate of SUs and to limit the interference brought to PUs. Numerical results show that the proposed multiuser two-way relay processing schemes and the optimal power control policies can efficiently limit the interference caused by the secondary network to primary users, and the sum rate of SUs can also be greatly improved.

    ABSTRACT: The performance of multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) com-munication systems is greatly increased by exploiting channel state information (CSI) for the transmitter design. In systems where channel reciprocity does not hold, a limited feedback link can be used to send the CSI from the receiver to the transmitter. How-ever, the resources for the feedback link come at the expense of resources for the forward link. This paper studies the trade-off be-tween the accuracy of the feedback information and system perfor-mance. The optimum resource allocation is presented as the so-lution to an analytic equation for different beamforming transmis-sion schemes to maximize the worst-case performance, in a frame-work including both time-division duplexing (TDD) and frequency-division duplexing (FDD).

    ABSTRACT: This work deals with the problem of radio resource allocation in a point-to-point multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) communications system with feedback of channel state information. A total pool of radio resources (power and transmission time) is allocated among training, feedback, and data transmission phases in order to maximize system performance in terms of throughput. The energy consumption associated to the base band signal processing and decoding is also evaluated. This resource allocation problem is studied analytically in a two-way time division duplex (TDD) communications scenario with time correlated channels, where the effect of feedback errors and feedback delay is also taken into account.
