ABSTRACT

Order statistics find applications in various areas of communications and signal processing. In this paper, we introduce an unified analytical framework to determine the joint statistics of partial sums of ordered random variables (RVs). With the proposed approach, we can systematically derive the joint statistics of any partial sums of ordered statistics, in terms of the moment generating function (MGF) and the probability density function (PDF). Our MGF-based approach applies not only when all the K ordered RVs are involved but also when only the Ks ( Ks <; K ) best RVs are considered. In addition, we present the closed-form expressions for the exponential RV special case. These results apply to the performance analysis of various wireless communication systems over fading channels.

    ABSTRACT: In this dissertation, adaptive power control for single and multiuser opportunistic systems is investigated. First, a new adaptive power-controlled diversity combining scheme for single user systems is proposed, upon which is extended to the multiusers case. In the multiuser case, we first propose two new threshold based parallel multiuser scheduling schemes without power control. The first scheme is named on-off based scheduling (OOBS) scheme and the second scheme is named switched based scheduling (SBS) scheme. We then propose and study the performance of thresholdbased power allocation algorithms for the SBS scheme. Finally, we introduce a unified analytical framework to determine the joint statistics of partial sums of ordered RVs with i.i.d. and then the impact of interference on the performance of parallel multiuser scheduling is investigated based on our unified analytical framework.

    ABSTRACT: In this paper, we investigate the impact of interference on the performance of selection based parallel multiuser scheduling. In conventional parallel multiuser scheduling schemes, every scheduled user is interfering with every other scheduled user. This is a factor which limits the capacity and performance of multiuser systems and the level of interference becomes substantial as the number of scheduled users increases. Based on the above motivation, we investigate the trade-off between the throughput and the number of scheduled users. The major difficulty in the total average sum rate capacity and the average spectral efficiency (ASE) analysis resides in the determination of the statistics of the Signal to Interference Plus Noise Ratio (SINR) of the scheduled user. Fortunately, we could derive the accurate statistical characterization of the SINR of the scheduled user. With these accurate statistical analysis, we derive the total average sum rate capacity and the average spectral efficiency based on the SINR. Based on the ASE and the total average sum rate capacity analysis, we investigate the trade-off between the throughput and the number of scheduled users. Hence, based on these results, the system should carefully select the appropriate number of scheduled users to maximize the overall throughput while maintaining an acceptable quality of service given certain channel conditions.

    ABSTRACT: Previous work on performance analyses of generalized selection combining (GSC) RAKE receivers based on the signal to noise ratio focused on the development of methodologies to derive exact closed-form expressions for various performance measures. However, some open problems related to the performance evaluation of GSC RAKE receivers still remain to be solved such that an assessment of the impact of self-interference on the performance of GSC RAKE receivers. To have a full and exact understanding of the performance of GSC RAKE receivers, the outage probability of GSC RAKE receivers needs to be analyzed as closed-form expressions. The major difficulty in this problem is to derive some joint statistics of ordered exponential variates. With this motivation in mind, we capitalize in this paper on some new order statistics results to derive exact closed-form expressions for outage probability of GSC RAKE receivers subject to self-interference over independent and identically distributed Rayleigh fading channels.
