Chapter 10. Array Design in Multipath

Wireless systems that require ultra-high data rates in interference-limited environments must use transmitters and receivers with multiple antennas to take advantage of spatial gains. There are numerous signal-processing schemes available for a multiple antenna system, whether it consists of a simple pair of diversity antennas or an array of antennas operating with sophisticated MIMO processing. Any discussion of these algorithms usually begins with a basic assumption: uncorrelated Rayleigh fading on each antenna element.

As we learned in Chapter 7, whether or not an antenna system has genuine uncorrelated Rayleigh fading on each transmitter or receiver element is heavily dependent upon the radio propagation ...
