Modulation Design for MIMO-CoMP HARQ

Modulation diversity (MoDiv) is a simple and practical transmission enhancement technique that utilizes different modulation mappings to reduce packet loss rate and achieve higher link throughput. MoDiv is particularly meaningful and effective in hybrid-ARQ (HARQ) systems. We study the deployment and optimization of MoDiv for HARQ in a MIMOcoordinated multi-point (MIMO-CoMP) scenario under Rician fading … Read more

Modulation Design for Two-Way Amplify-and-Forward Relay HARQ

As a practical technique for enhancing relay and HARQ transmissions, Modulation Diversity (MoDiv) uses distinct constellation mappings for data retransmissions. In this work, we study the MoDiv optimization in a amplify-and-forward (AF) two-way relay channel (TWRC). The design of MoDiv design to minimize the bit-error rate (BER) is formulated into a successive Koopmans-Beckmann Quadratic Assignment … Read more
