On the capacity of generalized-K fading MIMO channels
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2010
This correspondence explores the ergodic capacity of multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) systems operating in generalized-K fading conditions. Using some recent results on majorization theory, we derive an analytical capacity bound which is applicable for arbitrary values of the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) and number of antenna elements.
In addition, we deduce simple bound approximations in the high-SNR regime and demonstrate that the effects of small and large-scale fading are decoupled. A similar statistical analysis is carried out for MIMO channels
under K-fading, which represents a special case of generalized- fading that can be tackled via the Wishart matrix theory. The implications of the model parameters on the bound performance are also investigated via
Monte Carlo simulations.
