Spatial Multiplexing in

Multiuser Networks with

Limited Feedback.

1st edition 2009. XX, 184 pages; € 64,00. ISBN 978-3-86628-268-1




Spatial multiplexing is a well-known transmission technique for achieving high data rates in multiuser wireless networks. The benefits of spatial multiplexing are however quite limited in practice because of the lack of perfect channel knowledge at the sources. The present work shows that, in fact, the full gains of spatial multiplexing can be obtained in several important classes of multiuser networks even without perfect channel knowledge at the sources, provided that there exists feedback links of sufficient capacity from the destinations to the sources. In particular, four important classes of multiuser networks are investigated in detail, and feedback and transmission strategies are proposed for achieving full spatial multiplexing gains in each of these classes.
