Open Access research that shapes economic thinking...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by the Fraser of Allander Institute (FAI), a leading independent economic research unit focused on the Scottish economy and based within the Department of Economics. The FAI focuses on research exploring economics and its role within sustainable growth policy, fiscal analysis, energy and climate change, labour market trends, inclusive growth and wellbeing.

The open content by FAI made available by Strathprints also includes an archive of over 40 years of papers and commentaries published in the Fraser of Allander Economic Commentary, formerly known as the Quarterly Economic Commentary. Founded in 1975, "the Commentary" is the leading publication on the Scottish economy and offers authoritative and independent analysis of the key issues of the day.

Abstract

In this paper we consider a robust transceiver design for two hop non-regenerative multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) relay networks with imperfect channel state information (CSI). The transceiver consists of Tomlinson Harashima Pre-coding (THP) at the source with a linear precoder at the relay and linear equalisation at the destination. Under the assumption that each node in the network can acquire statistical knowledge of the channel in the form of a channel mean and estimation error covariance, we optimise the processors to minimise the expected arithmetic mean square error (MSE) subject to transmission power constraints at the source and relay. Simulation results demonstrate the robustness of the proposed transceiver design to channel estimation errors.
