Minimum outage probability transmission with imperfect feedback for MISO fading channels Academic Article uri icon


  • We study optimal transmission strategies in terms of minimum outage probability for a fading channel with multiple transmit antennas and a single receive antenna. We consider two cases of imperfect channel state information (CSI) feedback: mean feedback and covariance feedback. In both cases, the optimum strategy is shown to be transmission of multiple data streams to the same directions as when maximizing the ergodic channel capacity, but with different power allocation strategies which are closely related to the target rate. In the mean feedback case, the optimal power allocation strategy is also related to the accuracy of the feedback CSI, which affects significantly the achievable outage capacity. 2005 IEEE.
