MMSE-based beamforming techniques for relay broadcast channels

Cumanan, K, Rahulamathavan, Y., Lambotharan, S & Ding, Z (2013). MMSE-based beamforming techniques for relay broadcast channels. IEEE Transactions on Vehicular Technology, 62(8), pp. 4045-4051. doi: 10.1109/TVT.2013.2257906


We propose minimum mean square error (MMSE) based beamforming techniques for a multiantenna relay network, where a base station (BS) equipped with multiple antennas communicates with a number of single antenna users through a multiantenna relay.We specifically solve three optimization problems: a) sum-power minimization problem b) mean square error (MSE) balancing problem and c)mixed quality of services (QoS) problem. Unfortunately, these problems are not jointly convex in terms of beamforming vectors at the BS and the relay amplification matrix. To circumvent this non-convexity issue, the original problems are divided into two subproblems where the beamforming vectors and the relay amplification matrix are alternately optimized while other one is fixed. Three iterative algorithms have been developed based on convex optimization techniques and general MSE duality. Simulation results have been provided to validate the convergence of the proposed algorithms.
