Efficient initialisation of iterative linear massive MIMO detectors using a stair matrix

© The Institution of Engineering and Technology 2020 Several approximate matrix inversion methods have been used in linear massive MIMO uplink detectors where their convergence rate, performance, and complexity are greatly affected by the initial solution. In this Letter, the authors exploit a stair matrix, instead of a diagonal matrix, in initialising iterative linear minimum mean square error massive MIMO detector based on several approximate matrix inversion methods, namely, the Gauss-Seidel, successive over relaxation, Richardson iteration, and Newton iteration methods. Numerical results show a significant performance enhancement without a burden of extra complexity using a stair matrix over a diagonal matrix in all methods.

Protecting photonic quantum states using topology

  • Blanco-Redondo A.

The use of topology to protect quantum information is well-known to the condensed-matter community and, indeed, topological quantum computing is a bursting field of research and one of the competing avenues to demonstrate that quantum computers can complete certain problems that classical computers cannot. In photonics, however, we are only ...

  • Saniee I.
  • Weldon M.

This paper takes a fresh look at the debate over the relationship between digital technology and productivity. The argument of economic historian Robert J. Gordon is that digital technology will not lead to increases in productivity such as we saw in the last century, based on his analysis of the ...
