Strathclyde Open Access research that creates ripples...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of research papers by University of Strathclyde researchers, including by Strathclyde physicists involved in observing gravitational waves and black hole mergers as part of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) - but also other internationally significant research from the Department of Physics.

A pilot-assisted equalisation scheme for the UMTS-TDD downlink with partial loading

We address a pilot-assisted channel equalisation strategy for the partially loaded downlink time-division duplex (TDD) component of the universal mobile telecommunication system (UMTS). Adaptation is performed by minimising a hybrid cost function based on the constant modulus (CM) criterion for all active users and a mean square error (MSE) criterion for both absent users and pilot signals. Computer simulations are used to assess the performance of the equalisation strategy under various partially loaded conditions.
