On Outage Capacity in the Low Power Regime Academic Article uri icon


  • This paper derives a formula for the wideband slope for outage capacity and consider its application to some specific wireless channels. For the broadcast channel, the formula indicates that superposition is always superior to time-division multiple access (TDMA). On the other hand, for the interference channel, we show that TDMA is better than superposition for most realistic situations. © 2011 IEEE.
