Distributed interference alignment and power control for wireless MIMO interference networks
Paper in proceedings, 2013
This paper considers joint transceiver design and power control for K-user multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) interference networks. Each source intends to communicate with its corresponding destination at a fixed data rate. Only local channel side information (i.e. knowledge related to the channels directly connected to a terminal) is available at each terminal. We propose iterative algorithms to perform power control to guarantee successful communication while designing transmitter beamforming matrices and receiver filtering matrices according to the interference alignment concept. The proposed algorithms can exhibit a substantial performance improvement compared to the conventional orthogonal transmission schemes.
