Zhang, Min, Abhayapala, Thushara D., Jayalath, Dhammika, Smith, David, & Athaudage, Chandranath R. N. (2008) Multirate Space-Time-Frequency Linear block coding. In IEEE International Conference on Communications, 2008. ICC '08., 19-23 May 2008, Beijing, China.


This paper presents a multirate space-timefrequency linear block coding scheme (STFBC) with full transmit diversity for a variety of transmission rates. The proposed multirate STFBC can achieve relatively smooth balance between the performance and the transmission rate for a given constellation size. Design of a space-time linear block coding (STBC) scheme is presented as a special case of the proposed multirate STFBC, which perform better than some of the existing STBCs. Moreover, optimized multirate STFBCs have also been compared with some of the existing STFBCs. Simulations results show that the design parameter has sufficient flexibility to achieve improved performance with reduced computational complexity.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
