Abstract

Orthogonal space-time block codes (STBCs) are known to orthogonalise the multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) wireless channel, thus reducing the space-time vector detection to a simpler scalar detection problem. The capacity of STBCs over correlated Rayleigh and Ricean flat-fading MIMO channels under different adaptive transmitting techniques is studied. Three adaptive schemes known as optimal power and rate allocation, total channel inversion with fixed rate policy and its truncated variant are studied. Taking into account the effect of channel correlation, closed-form expressions are obtained for the capacity of orthogonalised Rayleigh and Ricean MIMO channels under these adaptive transmission techniques in order to avoid Monte-Carlo simulations.
