The FiniteLength MultiInput MultiOutput MMSEDFE Naofal AlDhahir and Ali H. Sayed

Summary: 1
The Finite­Length Multi­Input Multi­Output MMSE­DFE
Naofal Al­Dhahir and Ali H. Sayed
A new theoretical framework is introduced for analyzing the performance of a finite--length minimum--mean--square--
error decision feedback equalizer (MMSE--DFE) in a multi--input multi--output (MIMO) environment. The framework
includes transmit and receive diversity systems as special cases and quantifies the diversity performance improvement
as a function of the number of transmit/receive antennas and equalizer taps. Fast and parallelizable algorithms for
computing the finite--length MIMO MMSE--DFE are presented for three common multi­user detection scenarios.

I. Introduction
In multi--user communication over linear, dispersive, and noisy channels, the received signal is com­
posed of the sum of several transmitted signals corrupted by inter--symbol interference (ISI), inter--user
interference (IUI), and noise. Examples include TDMA digital cellular systems with multiple trans­
mit/receive antennas [25], [4], wide--band asynchronous CDMA systems [3], where IUI is also known
as multiple access interference (MAI), wide--band transmission over digital subscriber lines (DSL)
[1], where IUI takes the form of near--end and far--end crosstalk between adjacent twisted pairs, and
high--density digital magnetic recording where IUI is due to interference from adjacent tracks [15].
This work is motivated by the desire to increase the capacity of digital TDMA wireless networks
by allowing multiple transmissions sharing the same time slot and frequency band and separating
