1.Best Arm Identification Based Beam Acquisition in Stationary and Abruptly Changing Environments
Abstract: We study the initial beam acquisition problem in millimeter wave (mm-wave) networks from the perspective of best arm identification in multi-armed bandits (MABs). For the stationary environment, we propose a novel algorithm called concurrent beam exploration, CBE, in which multiple beams are grouped based on the beam indices and are simultaneously activated to detect the presence of the user. The best beam is then identified using a Hamming decoding strategy. For the case of orthogonal and highly directional thin beams, we characterize the performance of CBE in terms of the probability of missed detection and false alarm in a beam group (BG). Leveraging this, we derive the probability of beam selection error and prove that CBE outperforms the state-of-the-art strategies in this metric. Then, for the abruptly changing environments, e.g., in the case of moving blockages, we characterize the performance of the classical sequential halving (SH) algorithm. In particular, we derive the conditions on the distribution of the change for which the beam selection error is exponentially bounded. In case the change is restricted to a subset of the beams, we devise a strategy called K-sequential halving and exhaustive search, K-SHES, that leads to an improved bound for the beam selection error as compared to SH. This policy is particularly useful when a near-optimal beam becomes optimal during the beam-selection procedure due to abruptly changing channel conditions. Finally, we demonstrate the efficacy of the proposed scheme by employing it in a tandem beam refinement and data transmission scheme.
2.Optimal Coordinated Transmit Beamforming for Networked Integrated Sensing and Communications
Authors:Gaoyuan Cheng, Yuan Fang, Jie Xu, Derrick Wing Kwan Ng
Abstract: This paper studies a multi-antenna networked integrated sensing and communications (ISAC) system, in which a set of multi-antenna base stations (BSs) employ the coordinated transmit beamforming to serve multiple single-antenna communication users (CUs) and perform joint target detection by exploiting the reflected signals simultaneously. To facilitate target sensing, the BSs transmit dedicated sensing signals combined with their information signals. Accordingly, we consider two types of CU receivers with and without the capability of canceling the interference from the dedicated sensing signals, respectively. In addition, we investigate two scenarios with and without time synchronization among the BSs. For the scenario with synchronization, the BSs can exploit the target-reflected signals over both the direct links (BS-to-target-to-originated BS links) and the cross-links (BS-to-target-to-other BSs links) for joint detection, while in the unsynchronized scenario, the BSs can only utilize the target-reflected signals over the direct links. For each scenario under different types of CU receivers, we optimize the coordinated transmit beamforming at the BSs to maximize the minimum detection probability over a particular targeted area, while guaranteeing the required minimum signal-to-interference-plus-noise ratio (SINR) constraints at the CUs. These SINR-constrained detection probability maximization problems are recast as non-convex quadratically constrained quadratic programs (QCQPs), which are then optimally solved via the semi-definite relaxation (SDR) technique.

Abstract: We introduce a simplified method for calculating the loss function for use in geometric shaping, allowing for the optimisation of high dimensional constellations. We design constellations up to 12D with 4096 points, with gains up to 0.31 dB compared to the state-of-the-art.
4.Optimization of Rate-Splitting Multiple Access in Beyond Diagonal RIS-assisted URLLC Systems
Authors:Mohammad Soleymani, Ignacio Santamaria, Eduard Jorswieck, Bruno Clerckx
Abstract: This paper proposes a general optimization framework for rate splitting multiple access (RSMA) in beyond diagonal (BD) reconfigurable intelligent surface (RIS) assisted ultra-reliable low-latency communications (URLLC) systems. This framework can solve a large family of optimization problems in which the objective and/or constraints are linear functions of the rates and/or energy efficiency (EE) of users. Using this framework, we show that RSMA and RIS can be mutually beneficial tools when the system is overloaded, i.e., when the number of users per cell is higher than the number of base station (BS) antennas. Additionally, we show that the benefits of RSMA increase when the packets are shorter and/or the reliability constraint is more stringent. Furthermore, we show that the RSMA benefits increase with the number of users per cell and decrease with the number of BS antennas. Finally, we show that RIS (either diagonal or BD) can highly improve the system performance, and BD-RIS outperforms regular RIS.
5.On the hull and complementarity of one generator quasi-cyclic codes and four-circulant codes
Authors:Zohreh Aliabadi, Cem Güneri, Tekgül Kalaycı
Abstract: We study one generator quasi-cyclic codes and four-circulant codes, which are also quasi-cyclic but have two generators. We state the hull dimensions for both classes of codes in terms of the polynomials in their generating elements. We prove results such as the hull dimension of a four-circulant code is even and one-dimensional hull for double-circulant codes, which are special one generator codes, is not possible when the alphabet size $q$ is congruent to 3 mod 4. We also characterize linear complementary pairs among both classes of codes. Computational results on the code families in consideration are provided as well.
