Free registration required

Executive Summary

In this paper the capacity of MIMO systems is investigated for different realistic propagation scenarios in Rician fading channel. A nonparametric stochastic model is presented and it is used to develop the spatial fading correlation. Uplink statistical MIMO channel is assumed with Laplacian angular energy distributed over multi-clusters situations. Radio waves that are gathered in several clusters distributed over the space domain are assumed to exhibit different power profiles. Capacity investigations for both Uniform Linear Array (ULA) and Uniform Circular Array (UCA) for single cluster and multi-clustered assumptions are presented.
