Space-time block codes over the stiefel manifold
In this paper, we develop two approaches for designing unitarily-constrained space-time block codes, which are suitable for communicating high-resolution information in layered multiple-input multiple-output broadcast channels. Unlike existing space-time codes, which are usually synthesized from standard phase-shift keying (PSK) or quadrature amplitude modulation constellations, the space- time codes proposed herein are designed using direct optimization over the unitary group. In comparison with conventional unitary space-time block codes, including Alamouti code with PSK constellations, the space-time codes generated by the proposed approaches exhibit significantly better performance, more favorable distance spectra and more effective utilization of the degrees of freedom that underlie the unitary group.
