This paper studies opportunistic spectrum sharing strategy (i.e., quantized precoding strategy) selection for cognitive multiple-input multiple-output multiple access channels with limited feedback under interference power constraint and maximum transmission stream number constraint. We put forward a game-theoretic framework to model the precoding strategy selection behaviors of the secondary users under the specified constraints. First, we prove the formulated discrete game is a potential game which possesses at least one feasible pure strategy Nash equilibrium. The feasibility and optimality of the Nash equilibrium are also analyzed. Then we prove that the solution to the sum rate maximization problem constitutes a feasible pure strategy Nash equilibrium of our formulated game. Furthermore, we design two algorithms. The iterative precoding strategy selection algorithm based on the best response rule is designed to attain a feasible Nash equilibrium. The modified algorithm is designed to improve the sum rate performance. Simulation results show that our designed algorithms can achieve optimal or near optimal sum rate performance with low complexity. © 2011 IEEE.

It was recently shown that the multiplicative-repetition codes can achieve surprising excellent performance when concatenated with non-binary LDPC codes. However, the role of multiplicative-repetition codes is not well understood. In this paper, we provide important insights into the performance of the multiplicative-repetition codes under the maximum-likelihood decoding over binary erasure channels (BECs). It is shown that the design of good multiplicative-repetition code with repetition degree of T under ML decoding is equivalent to optimizing the distance profile of the minimal codewords for the code of the rate T-1/T Furthermore, we also provide important insights into the design of polar codes, as it can be viewed as a special class of multiplicative-repetition codes. © 2012 IEEE.

A blind source separation algorithm by the accurate diagonalization of second-order statistics is presented for the mixed speech-noise signals. The new algorithm uses the autocorrelation covariance matrix and its one-sample delayed counterpart of the two prewhitened noisy data and forms two 2×2 positive definite symmetry matrices pencil. A tangent algorithm for computing the generalized singular value decomposition is then exploited for simultaneously diagonalizing these two matrices accurately, and its theoretic proof is also presented. Compared with JADE algorithm and SOBI algorithm, the new algorithm is of simple computation and more computation precision. And it overcomes the limitations of their both incapable accurate diagonalization for fourth-order cumulant matrices and time-delayed covariance matrices, separately. Under the conditions of white Gaussian and colored noise, computer simulation results show that the performance of the new algorithm separating speech from noisy data is superior to those of JADE algorithm and SOBI algorithm. © 2010 IEEE.

This paper investigates the joint relay selection and discrete power control in cognitive relay networks through a game theoretic approach. Using the rate of cognitive relay network as the common utility, we firstly formulate the problem of the joint relay selection and discrete power control as a noncooperative game. Then, we prove that the proposed game is a potential game which possess at least one pure strategy Nash equilibrium (NE) and the optimal strategy profile which maximizes the rate of the cognitive relay network constitutes a pure strategy NE of our proposed game. We prove that, under mild conditions, our proposed game can guarantee the feasibility of the pure strategy NE without the advance knowledge of the infeasible strategy profiles. Then we design a decentralized stochastic learning algorithm based on learning automata and prove that the proposed algorithm can converge to a pure strategy NE. Numerical results show that our proposed algorithm has good convergence and promising performance. © 2013 IEEE.

Heterogeneous wireless mesh networks (WMNs) become one of the development trends because they can provide flexible and diverse wireless network access methods for large indoor and outdoor areas. The simulation based study of wireless mesh networks cannot model all the details of complex wireless environment. This paper presents a wireless mesh testbed called MeshCBD which consists of 6 kinds of networks and the bandwidth differences of these networks are distinct. The architecture and the implementation details are discussed. As an application example of the testbed, we also discuss the experimental results which show the influence of different modulation methods as well as routing protocol parameters to the performance of the application traffic which runs through the testbed. © 2011 IEEE.

Recent results have shown that employing NC may have an adverse effect and dimmish the advantage of NC in CC because of the existence of NC noise. The authors propose space network- coded cooperation (SNCC) in which sources transmit in turn, and relays overhear and process the data they have received from different sources. Then, they broadcast the coded data to corresponding destinations in a single time instance. In this spirit, NC can be viewed as being performed in the space, and each destination can average the NC noise that comes from different relays. The authors derive a closed-form expression for the NC noise of SNCC, and show that SNCC has a potential to significantly reduce the NC noise if sessions in the network are well organised into disjoint groups/coalitions to use SNCC. Towards the end, the formation of SNCC coalitions is interpreted as a coalition formation game. Algorithms are proposed to get the solution of the game. Finally, through numerical simulations, the authors demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed SNCC scheme and algorithms in achieving a high spectrum efficiency for CC. © 2014 The Institution of Engineering and Technology.

Node positioning is a useful service for a vehicular communication system. The global positioning system (GPS) is the most popular positioning technique widely used in vehicular communication systems. However, GPS cannot work effectively in many situations, for example, in a tunnel or under a bridge. For accurate positioning in such situations, it is desirable to have more reliable positioning techniques. In this paper, we propose a novel method for node positioning in vehicular communication systems. Unlike existing positioning methods that employ a roadside node as an observation station, the proposed positioning method allows a vehicular node to play the role of an observation station, and estimates the vehicular node's absolute coordinates based on the measurement of the Doppler frequency shift, the velocity of the vehicular node, and the known absolute coordinates of roadside nodes. To improve positioning accuracy, it introduces extended Kalman filtering (EKF) to mitigate the effects of channel noise and multipath interference. Analytical and simulation results show that the proposed positioning method can significantly improve the positioning accuracy compared with differential GPS and reduce the positioning delay.

This paper presents a novel architecture of iterative receivers with two layers of iterations for turbo coded multiple-input and multiple-output orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (MIMO-OFDM) systems, where soft messages are passed not only between the MIMO detector and the turbo decoder, but also between the two component decoders within the turbo decoder. We first derive the factor graph representation of a turbo coded system as a basic building block for developing the iterative receivers. Then, a new soft message passing schedule over the factor graph is proposed, resulting in the proposed dual-turbo receiver architecture (DTRA). In DTRA, the MIMO detector and the turbo decoder work concurrently, and the soft messages for both layers of iterations are updated instantaneously, instead of the block-based exchange of soft messages in the conventional iterative receivers. In so doing, the processing latency can be greatly reduced while low computational complexity can be achieved. © 2011 Science China Press and Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.

The authors study the optimisation of the rate-compatible (RC)-irregular-repeat-accumulate (IRA) codes for asymmetric Slepian-Wolf coding to deal with flexible correlated sources. By assuming two different additive white Gaussian noise channels, the authors formulate a non-uniform extrinsic information transfer method to optimise the degree distribution of RC-IRA codes. The parity check matrices of RC-IRA codes are constructed from a mother matrix by combining puncturing and check-splitting, which achieves a good trade-off between the lowest-rate codes and the highest-rate codes. Simulation results show that the optimised non-uniform error-correcting code performs very close to the Slepian-Wolf limit over the target compression rate range and outperforms the prior results. © 2012 The Institution of Engineering and Technology.

For practical bi-directional relaying, symbols transmitted by two sources cannot arrive at the relay with perfect symbol and frame alignments and the asynchronous multiple-access channel (MAC) should be seriously considered. In this paper, we consider the Low-Density Parity-Check (LDPC)-coded BPSK signalling over the general asynchronous MAC with both frame and symbol misalignments. For the symbol-asynchronous MAC, we present a formal log-domain generalized sum-product-algorithm (Log-G-SPA) for efficient decoding. When the frame-asynchronism is encountered at the relay, we propose an original approach by employing the cyclic LDPC codes and the simple cyclic-redundancy-check (CRC) coding technique. Simulation results demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed approach. © 1983-2012 IEEE.
