We propose a reduced-rank beamformer based on the rank-$D$ Joint Iterative Optimization (JIO) of the modified Widely Linear Constrained Minimum Variance (WLCMV) problem for non-circular signals. The novel WLCMV-JIO scheme takes advantage of both the Widely Linear (WL) processing and the reduced-rank concept, outperforming its linear counterpart as well as the full-rank WL beamformer. We develop an augmented recursive least squares algorithm and present an improved structured version with a much more efficient implementation. It is shown that the improved adaptive scheme achieves the best convergence performance among all the considered methods with a low computational complexity. © 1994-2012 IEEE.

This work proposes a blind adaptive reduced-rank scheme and constrained constant-modulus (CCM) adaptive algorithms for interference suppression in wireless communications systems. The proposed scheme and algorithms are based on a two-stage processing framework that consists of a transformation matrix that performs dimensionality reduction followed by a reduced-rank estimator. The complex structure of the transformation matrix of existing methods motivates the development of a blind adaptive reduced-rank constrained (BARC) scheme along with a low-complexity reduced-rank decomposition. The proposed BARC scheme and a reduced-rank decomposition based on the concept of joint interpolation, switched decimation and reduced-rank estimation subject to a set of constraints are then detailed. The proposed set of constraints ensures that the multipath components of the channel are combined prior to dimensionality reduction. We develop low-complexity joint interpolation and decimation techniques, stochastic gradient, and recursive least squares reduced-rank estimation algorithms. A model-order selection algorithm for adjusting the length of the estimators is devised along with techniques for determining the required number of switching branches to attain a predefined performance. An analysis of the convergence properties and issues of the proposed optimization and algorithms is carried out, and the key features of the optimization problem are discussed. We consider the application of the proposed algorithms to interference suppression in DS-CDMA systems. The results show that the proposed algorithms outperform the best known reduced-rank schemes, while requiring lower complexity. © 2006 IEEE.

This study presents distributed conjugate gradient (CG) algorithms for distributed parameter estimation and spectrum estimation over wireless sensor networks. In particular, distributed conventional CG (CCG) and modified CG (MCG) algorithms are developed with incremental and diffusion adaptive cooperation strategies. The distributed CCG and MCG algorithms have an improved performance in terms of mean square error as compared with least-mean square-based algorithms and a performance that is close to recursive least-squares algorithms. In comparison with existing centralised or distributed estimation strategies, key features of the proposed algorithms are: (i) more accurate estimates and faster convergence speed can be obtained and (ii) the design of preconditioners for CG algorithms, which can improve the performance of the proposed CG algorithms is presented. Simulations show the performance of the proposed CG algorithms against previously reported techniques for distributed parameter estimation and distributed spectrum estimation applications. © The Institution of Engineering and Technology.

In this paper, we investigate precoding techniques for physical-layer security in multi-user MIMO systems under various conditions of channel state information (CSI). A Lattice Reduction (LR) aided non-linear precoding technique based on Successive Optimization Tomlinson-Harashima Precoding (SO-THP) and Simplified Generalized Matrix Inversion (S-GMI) technique is proposed along with a strategy for injecting artificial noise prior to transmission. Simulation results show that the proposed LR-SO-THP+S-GMI precoding technique outperforms existing non-linear and linear precoding algorithms in terms of BER and secrecy rate performances. © 2014 IEEE.

In this work, we present the low-complexity variable forgetting factor (VFF) technique for the diffusion recursive least squares (RLS) algorithm. In particular, we adopt the VFF mechanism that rely on time-averages of the posteriori error signal and incorporate it into the diffusion RLS (DRLS) algorithm to yield the low-complexity correlated time-averaged VFF diffusion RLS (LCTVFF-DRLS) algorithm. We develop detailed analyses in terms of mean and mean square performance for the proposed algorithm, and derive mathematical expressions to compute the mean square deviation (MSD) and the excess mean square error (EMSE). The simulation results show that the proposed LCTVFF-DRLS algorithm outperforms the existing DRLS algorithm with the fixed forgetting factor, and demonstrate a good match between our proposed analytical expressions and simulated results. © 2016 IEEE.

This paper investigates the design of vector perturbation (VP) precoding using lattice reduction (LR) based on a multi-branch (MB) strategy for multi- user multiple-input multiple-output (MU-MIMO) systems. The MB strategy constructs a group of branches for transmitting data streams according to a pre-designed ordering scheme. For each branch, an LR-aided minimum mean square error (MMSE) VP precoder is proposed and three methods are devised for the perturbation vector design. We also develop an effective scheme to design the transmit ordering patterns with appropriate structures and a suitable selection mechanism to choose the best one. Simulation results show that the proposed MB-LR-MMSE-VP algorithm achieves a better bit error rate (BER) performance than existing VP precoding schemes. © 2016 IEEE.

This letter proposes a novel sparsity-aware adaptive filtering scheme and algorithms based on an alternating optimization strategy with shrinkage. The proposed scheme employs a two-stage structure that consists of an alternating optimization of a diagonally-structured matrix that speeds up the convergence and an adaptive filter with a shrinkage function that forces the coefficients with small magnitudes to zero. We devise alternating optimization least-mean square (LMS) algorithms for the proposed scheme and analyze its mean-square error. Simulations for a system identification application show that the proposed scheme and algorithms outperform in convergence and tracking existing sparsity-aware algorithms. © 1994-2012 IEEE.

Low-density parity-check (LDPC) codes offer excellent performance at competitive levels of complexity. Short block length LDPC codes avoid the large processing latency incurred by the large block lengths classically considered for this class of codes, making them a potential candidate for next generation wireless communications systems. In this paper, a novel informed dynamic scheduling (IDS) approach for decoding LDPC codes is developed based on the use of the current message reliabilities and the residuals of the potential updates to select the messages passed in the graph during iterative Sum Product decoding. An alternative measure of the iteration of the IDS schemes is also proposed which highlights the high cost of those algorithms in terms of processing complexity and motivates the development of the proposed approach. The proposed Rel.-RBP decoding algorithm offers very fast convergence at reduced complexity and gains in error rate performance when compared to the previous schemes. © 2015 IEEE.

We propose blind adaptive multi-input multi-output (MIMO) linear receivers for DS-CDMA systems using multiple transmit antennas and space-time block codes (STBC) in multipath channels. A space-time code-constrained constant modulus (CCM) design criterion based on constrained optimization techniques is considered and recursive least squares (RLS) adaptive algorithms are developed for estimating the parameters of the linear receivers. A blind space-time channel estimation method for MIMO DS-CDMA systems with STBC based on a subspace approach is also proposed along with an efficient RLS algorithm. Simulations for a downlink scenario assess the proposed algorithms in several situations against existing methods. © 2010 IEEE.
