Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

In this paper we investigate non-linear precoding solutions for the problem of broadband multiple-input multipleoutput (MIMO) systems. Based on a broadband singular value decomposition (BSVD) we can decouple a broadband MIMO channel into independent dispersive spectrally majorised singleinput single-output (SISO) subchannels. Bit loading is proposed to optimally utilise these SISO subchannels after mitigating their individual inter-symbol-interference (ISI) using Tomlinson- Harashima precoding (THP). This method is benchmarked against recent results of both MMSE linear and THP designed for frequency-selective MIMO channels. Simulation results show that better bit-error-ratio (BER) can be achieved especially for higher throughput targets when compared to the benchmark
