ABSTRACT We characterize the statistical properties of the mutual information between the transmitter and the receiver of a multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) communication system in case of spatially correlated Rayleigh-fading keyhole channels with arbitrarily correlated input signals and potentially colored additive Gaussian noise. The probability density function (pdf) as well as the cumulative distribution function (cdf) of the mutual information are derived in a concise mathematical form and we determine exact analytical closed-form expressions for its mean value as well as the corresponding high SNR asymptotics. Numerical results illustrate the impact of several different parameters on the mutual information statistics and are shown to be in perfect agreement with results obtained from Monte-Carlo simulations, thus verifying the accuracy of our theoretical analysis.

    ABSTRACT: Multi-keyhole condition, which includes the single-keyhole model and conventional Rayleigh model as special cases, is a highly generalized channel description. So far the space-time coding research is limited to orthogonal codes for the multi-keyhole channel model. In this paper, we consider general space-time codes in the multi-keyhole channel and we prove that, for any pairs of code words in a space-time code, the code words distance, as a random variable in fading conditions, is identically distributed in MISO multi-keyhole channels and MIMO single-keyhole channels. Therefore the PEPs for a pair of code words in these two channel models share the same form and thus one can employ the design criteria in MIMO single-keyhole channels to design the codes for MISO multi-keyhole channels. We further investigate the case when spatial correlations are present in transmission antennas. We show that, when $M>N$ (the number of transmission antennas greater than the number of keyholes), depending on how the correlation matrix beamforms the code words difference matrix $\mathbf{\Delta}$, the PEP can be either degraded or improved. Particularly, we prove that if the eigenvalues of $\mathbf{\Delta}$ satisfy certain conditions, there always exist some correlation matrices that can improve the PEP. We provide one form of such correlation matrices. Our results are verified by monte carlo simulations.

    ABSTRACT: This paper presents an analytical performance analysis for a multi-keyhole multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) fading channel. Our main contribution is a set of new statistical results for the maximum eigenvalue of the random multi-keyhole channel matrix, which includes closed-form expressions for the cumulative distribution function and probability density function, as well as asymptotic expansions. Based on the results, we analyze the outage performance of the optimal joint beamforming system in multi-keyhole MIMO channels. Our results illustrate that the outage performance of the multi-keyhole channels is generally worse than that of rich-scattering MIMO Rayleigh channels.
