  • Dimension spreading for coherent opportunistic communications 

    Borràs Pino, Jordi; Font Segura, Josep; Riba Sagarra, Jaume; Vázquez Grau, Gregorio (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2018)
    Conference report

    The waveform optimization problem for opportunistic communications is addressed, based on sensing the second-order statistics of the existing transmissions. We propose a minimum-norm waveform optimization that exhibits ...
  • Learning from unequally reliable blind ensembles of classifiers 

    Traganitis, Panagiotis; Pagès Zamora, Alba Maria; Giannakis, Georgios B. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2017)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    The rising interest in pattern recognition and data analytics has spurred the development of a plethora of machine learning algorithms and tools. However, as each algorithm has its strengths and weaknesses, one is motivated ...
  • Entropy-based covariance determinant estimation 

    Cabrera Estanyol, Ferran de; Riba Sagarra, Jaume; Vázquez Grau, Gregorio (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2017)
    Conference lecture
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    An information-theoretic approach is described to estimate the determinant of the covariance matrix of a random vector sequence (a common task in a wide range of estimation and detection problems in signal processing for ...
  • Diversity techniques for blind equalization in mobile communications 

    Lamarca Orozco, M. Meritxell; Vázquez Grau, Gregorio (1997)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    This paper deals with blind equalization of mobile channels, which are either frequency-selective or multiplicative. The proposed algorithm can be used for channel distortion compensation in diversity systems subject ...
  • Balancing egoistic and altruistic transmit beamforming in femtocell networks 

    Husso, Mika; Dowhuszko, Alexis; Hamalainen, K.; Pastore, Adriano; Rodríguez Fonollosa, Javier (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2011)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    In this paper, we study the balancing of egoistic (maximum-ratio, MR) and altruistic (zero-forcing, ZF) beamforming (BF) in femtocells through simulations. To investigate the achievable gains from operating between the ...
  • On a mutual information and a capacity bound gap of pilot-aided MIMO channels 

    Pastore, Adriano; Joham, Michael; Rodríguez Fonollosa, Javier (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2011)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    For single-user MIMO channels with partial re ceiver CSI, we study the difference between a lower bound and two alternative upper bounds of the mutual information achieved with Gaussian codebooks. These differences are ...
  • Joint pilot and precoder design for optimal throughput 

    Pastore, Adriano; Joham, Michael; Rodríguez Fonollosa, Javier (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2011)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    For single-user, multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) channels with Rayleigh fading correlated at the transmitter side, and where the receiver only has partial channel knowledge in form of an MMSE channel estimate, we ...
  • Blind multi-user combining at the base station for asynchronous CDMA systems 

    Muñoz Medina, Olga; Fernández Rubio, Juan Antonio (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 1996)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    This paper studies the potential benefits of antenna arrays in cellular CDMA communications and proposes a powerful scheme to undertake the array processing at the base station in CDMA mobile systems. The proposed technique ...
  • Snapshot processing of high-order BOC signals in the cloud: on sensitivity and distortion effects 

    García Molina, José; Fernández Rubio, Juan Antonio; Weiler, R.; Crisci, M. (ION Publications (The Institute of navigation), 2017)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    This paper discusses the unambiguous estimation of high-order BOC signals in the cloud based on signal snapshots gathered by low-end SDR receivers. In particular, the sensitivity and distortion problems are introduced, ...
  • Receive spatial modulation for massive MIMO systems 

    Raafat, Ahmed; Agustín de Dios, Adrián; Vidal Manzano, José (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2017)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    In this paper, we consider the downlink of a massive multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO) single user transmission system operating in the millimeter wave outdoor narrowband channel environment. We propose a novel receive ...
  • Signal-timing offset compensation in dense TDD OFDM-based networks 

    Agustín de Dios, Adrián; Lagén Morancho, Sandra; Vidal Manzano, José (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2017)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM)-based networks rely on time synchronization to obtain their best performance. Time synchronization with neighboring nodes can be satisfied by increasing the cyclic prefix ...
  • Cooperative linear precoding for multi-user MISO visible light communications 

    Viñals Terrés, Roser; Muñoz Medina, Olga; Agustín de Dios, Adrián; Vidal Manzano, José (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2017)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    This paper develops and evaluates precoding techniques for coordinated joint transmission in visible light communications (VLC). A multi-user multiple-input single-output (MISO) setup is adopted. Transmitters are equipped ...
