Robust Linear Precoding for MSE Minimization in MIMO Broadcast Systems With Channel Gram Matrix Feedback
In this paper, the authors deal with a Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) multiuser Broadcast Channel (BC) featuring linear precoding at the transmitter. The design of such precoder is performed according to the Channel State Information (CSI) sent by the different users through parallel feedback links. A general feedback framework based on the quantization of each user's channel Gram matrix is presented. Once the channel Gram matrices are available at the transmitter, they can be used to compute equivalent triangular MIMO channels for which the optimum precoder is calculated.
