An Improved Tomlinson-Harashima Precoder Reducing Transmission Power
Tomlinson-Harashima Precoder (THP) is an efficient interference pre-canceler, however, the transmission power is increased over the symbol power due to the modulo operation. In this paper, the authors propose an improved THP that reduces the transmission power of the conventional THP by tilting a group of symbols by an angle toward minimizing the transmission power. The tilted angle can be either estimated by the receiver or notified by the transmitter using a feed-forward information. Assuming a large interference, the average transmission power of the proposed THP is derived by the central limit theorem and Gumbel extreme value distribution.
