  • © 2003 IEEE. This paper aims at comparing the respective benefit of Space-Time BICM and Space-Time Trellis Code for a MIMO Block Fading Multipath channel. Giving a general framework for the calculation of the outage probability, we try to point out the best transmit scheme that approaches the closest the outage probability, assuming the most efficient receiver (i.e., disregarding any complexity aspect).
