Paper Abstract

Combined optimization of the source precoder, relay weighting matrices, and destination decoder is proposed in dual-hop amplify-and-forward (AF) multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) multiple-relay networks with the source-to-destination link in correlated channels. This broadband cooperative transceiver design is studied based on the minimum mean-squared error (MMSE) criterion under correlated fading channels. The optimization problem belongs neither concave nor convex so that an iterative nonlinear matrix conjugate gradient (MCG) search algorithm is applied to explore local optimal solutions. Simulation results show that the broadband cooperative transceiver joint architecture performs better the non-cooperative transceiver design in terms of the bit-error-rate (BER).
