1.SNR Maximization in Beyond Diagonal RIS-assisted Single and Multiple Antenna Links
Authors:Ignacio Santamaria, Mohammad Soleymani, Eduard Jorswieck, Jesus Gutierrez
Abstract: Reconfigurable intelligent surface (RIS) architectures not limited to diagonal phase shift matrices have recently been considered to increase their flexibility in shaping the wireless channel. One of these beyond-diagonal RIS or BD-RIS architectures leads to a unitary and symmetric RIS matrix. In this letter, we consider the problem of maximizing the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) in single and multiple antenna links assisted by a BD-RIS. The Max-SNR problem admits a closed-form solution based on the Takagi factorization of a certain complex and symmetric matrix. This allows us to solve the max-SNR problem for SISO, SIMO, and MISO channels.
2.Joint Port Selection Based Channel Acquisition for FDD Cell-Free Massive MIMO
Authors:Cheng Zhang, Pengguang Du, Minjie Ding, Yindi Jing, Yongming Huang
Abstract: In frequency division duplexing (FDD) cell-free massive MIMO, the acquisition of the channel state information (CSI) is very challenging because of the large overhead required for the training and feedback of the downlink channels of multiple cooperating base stations (BSs). In this paper, for systems with partial uplink-downlink channel reciprocity, and a general spatial domain channel model with variations in the average port power and correlation among port coefficients, we propose a joint-port-selection-based CSI acquisition and feedback scheme for the downlink transmission with zero-forcing precoding. The scheme uses an eigenvalue-decomposition-based transformation to reduce the feedback overhead by exploring the port correlation. We derive the sum-rate of the system for any port selection. Based on the sum-rate result, we propose a low-complexity greedy-search-based joint port selection (GS-JPS) algorithm. Moreover, to adapt to fast time-varying scenarios, a supervised deep learning-enhanced joint port selection (DL-JPS) algorithm is proposed. Simulations verify the effectiveness of our proposed schemes and their advantage over existing port-selection channel acquisition schemes.

Abstract: This paper proposes a grant-free massive access scheme based on the millimeter wave (mmWave) extra-large-scale multiple-input multiple-output (XL-MIMO) to support massive Internet-of-Things (IoT) devices with low latency, high data rate, and high localization accuracy in the upcoming sixth-generation (6G) networks. The XL-MIMO consists of multiple antenna subarrays that are widely spaced over the service area to ensure line-of-sight (LoS) transmissions. First, we establish the XL-MIMO-based massive access model considering the near-field spatial non-stationary (SNS) property. Then, by exploiting the block sparsity of subarrays and the SNS property, we propose a structured block orthogonal matching pursuit algorithm for efficient active user detection (AUD) and channel estimation (CE). Furthermore, different sensing matrices are applied in different pilot subcarriers for exploiting the diversity gains. Additionally, a multi-subarray collaborative localization algorithm is designed for localization. In particular, the angle of arrival (AoA) and time difference of arrival (TDoA) of the LoS links between active users and related subarrays are extracted from the estimated XL-MIMO channels, and then the coordinates of active users are acquired by jointly utilizing the AoAs and TDoAs. Simulation results show that the proposed algorithms outperform existing algorithms in terms of AUD and CE performance and can achieve centimeter-level localization accuracy.
