Complex Orthogonal Space-Time Processing in Wireless Communications
Le Chung Tran, Tadeusz A. Wysocki, Alfred Mertins, Jennifer Seberry
Complex Orthogonal Space-Time Processing in Wireless Communications incorporates orthogonal space-time processing using STBCs in MIMO wireless communication systems. Complex Orthogonal STBCs (CO STBCs) are given emphasis because they can be used for PSK/QAM modulation schemes and are more practical than real STBCs.
The overall coverage provides general knowledge about space-time processing and its applications for broad audiences. It also includes the most up-to-date review of the literature on space-time processing in general, and space-time block processing in particular. The authors also examine open issues and problems for future research in this area.
