Smart AntennasaState of the Art brings together the broad expertise of 41 European experts in smart antennas. They provide a comprehensive review and an extensive analysis of the recent progress and new results generated during the last years in almost all fields of smart antennas and MIMO (multiple-input multiple-output) transmission. The following represents a summarized table of content.Receiver: space-time processing, antenna combining, reduced rank processing, robust beamforming, subspace methods, synchronization, equalization, multiuser detection, iterative methods Channel: propagation, measurements and sounding, modelling, channel estimation, direction-of-arrival estimation, subscriber location estimation Transmitter: space-time block coding, channel side information, unified design of linear transceivers, ill-conditioned channels, MIMO-MAC strategies Network Theory: channel capacity, network capacity, multihop networks Technology: antenna design, transceivers, demonstrators and testbeds, future air interfaces Applications and Systems: 3G system and link level aspects, MIMO HSDPA, MIMO-WLAN/UMTS implementation issues This book serves as a reference for scientists and engineers who need to be aware of the leading edge research in multiple-antenna communications, an essential technology for emerging broadband wireless systems.It is commonly understood that radio systems equipped with multiple antennas at both the mobile station (MS) and the base station (BS) have a ... A key question for a system design and implementation is therefore do we find practically feasible schemes that are sufficiently robust for this task? ... Hence, a thorough investigation of the multidimensional wave propagation mechanisms is a prerequisite foranbsp;...
