A Simple SINR Characterization for Linear Interference Alignment Over Uncertain MIMO Channels

Free registration required

Executive Summary

This paper provides a simple closed-form SINR expression for interference alignment over MIMO channels with channel uncertainty. Assuming linear processing (specifically, zero-forcing) at the transmitters and receivers and a complex Gaussian interference channel, the authors show that random matrix theory can be successfully applied to find the SINR distribution of each stream for each user with channel uncertainty. Perfect channel knowledge constitutes a special case. This SINR distribution allows easy calculation of useful performance metrics like symbol error-rate and achievable sum rate.
