Executive Summary

This paper suggests an efficient power allocation scheme for Multiple Input and Multiple Output - Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (MIMO-OFDM) systems achieving near-optimum. The authors deal with power allocation problem with low complexity. It is well known that the conventional waterfilling algorithm runs repetitive calculations and logarithm operations to find out an optimal water level over whole time and spatial dimensions. To cope with this complexity problem, they investigate the problem structure originated from the characteristic of optimal waterfilling in MIMO-OFDM system through convex analysis, which leads to a unique step structure for optimal power allocation.
