This paper proposes a new method of construction of compact fully-connected Quasi-Cyclic Low Density Parity Check (QC-LDPC) code with girth g = 10 and g = 12. The originality of the proposed method is to impose constraint on the exponent matrix P to reduce the search space drastically. For a targeted expansion factor of N, the first step of the method is to sieve the integer ring Z_N to make a particular sub-group with specific properties to construct the second column of P (the first column bei...

Polar codes has been selected as the channel coding scheme for 5G new radio (NR) control channel. Specifically, a special type of parity-check polar (PC-Polar) codes was adopted in uplink control information (UCI). In this paper, we propose a parity-check soft-cancellation (PC-SCAN) algorithm and its simplified version to decode PC-Polar codes. The potential benefits are two-fold. First, PC-SCAN can provide soft output for PC-Polar codes, which is essential for advanced turbo receivers. Second, ...

In this paper, we perform a survey on new 3GPP LTE-Advanced enhancements, covering the technologies recently adopted by the Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) in LTE Release 11 and those being discussed in LTE Release 12. In more details, we introduce the latest enhancements on carrier aggregation (CA), multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) and coordinated multi-point (CoMP) as well as three-dimensional (3D) beam-forming. Moreover, considering that network nodes will become very diverse...

Large communication networks, e.g. Internet of Things (IoT), are known to be vulnerable to co-channel interference. One possibility to address this issue is the use of orthogonal multiple access (OMA) techniques. However, due to a potentially very long duty cycle, OMA is not well suited for such schemes. Instead, random medium access (RMA) appears more promising. An RMA scheme is based on transmission of short data packets with random scheduling, which is typically unknown to the receiver. The r...

In this work, we propose a new single-RF MIMO architecture which enjoys high scalability and energy-efficiency. The transmitter in this proposal consists of a single RF illuminator radiating towards a reflecting surface. Each element on the reflecting surface re-transmits its received signal after applying a phase-shift, such that a desired beamforming pattern is obtained. For this architecture, the problem of beamforming is interpreted as linear regression and a solution is derived via the meth...

Visible light communication (VLC) systems are promising candidates for future indoor access and peer-to-peer networks. The performance of these systems, however, is vulnerable to the line of sight (LOS) link blockage due to objects inside the room. In this paper, we develop a probabilistic object detection method that takes advantage of the blockage status of the LOS links between the user devices and transceivers on the ceiling to locate those objects. The target objects are modeled as cylinder...

Linear regression without correspondences concerns the recovery of a signal in the linear regression setting, where the correspondences between the observations and the linear functionals are unknown. The associated maximum likelihood function is NP-hard to compute when the signal has dimension larger than one. To optimize this objective function we reformulate it as a concave minimization problem, which we solve via branch-and-bound. This is supported by a computable search space to branch, an ...

In the next generation of wireless systems, Massive MIMO offers high angular resolution for localization. By virtue of large number of antennas, users' angle of arrival can be estimated with high accuracy. As Massive MIMO antenna array can be very large, the channels seen by different antennas might differ from each other, however, this does not rule out the possibility of the Angle of Arrival (AoA) estimation. We show that Cramer-Rao Lower Bound (CRLB) in multi-user independent, identically dis...

One of the classical approaches for estimating the frequencies and damping factors in a spectrally sparse signal is the MUSIC algorithm, which exploits the low-rank structure of an autocorrelation matrix. Low-rank matrices have also received considerable attention recently in the context of optimization algorithms with partial observations, and nuclear norm minimization (NNM) has been widely used as a popular heuristic of rank minimization for low-rank matrix recovery problems. On the other hand...

Due to some practical applications, linear complementary dual (LCD) codes and self-orthogonal codes have attracted wide attention in recent years. In this paper, we use simplicial complexes for construction of an infinite family of binary LCD codes and two infinite families of binary self-orthogonal codes. Moreover, we explicitly determine the weight distributions of these codes. We obtain binary LCD codes which have minimum weights two or three, and we also find some self-orthogonal codes meeti...
