In this paper, multi-stream transmission in interference networks aided by multiple amplify-and-forward (AF) relays in the presence of direct links is studied. The objective is to minimize the sum power of transmitters and relays by distributed transmit beamforming optimization under the stream signal-to-interference-plus-noise-ratio (SINR) target constraints. We utilize alternating direction method of multipliers (ADMM) algorithm for distributed implementation. The optimization problem is a well-known non-convex NP-hard quadratically constrained quadratic program (QCQP), which, after semi-definite relaxation (SDR), can be optimally solved via ADMM. The convergence rate, computational complexity, and message exchange load of the proposed algorithm are shown to outperform the existing distributed algorithm.

Consider a two-hop interference relay network with K multi-antenna transmitters and receivers, and a single multi-antenna relay. The relay employs amplify-and-forward (AF) strategy. The direct links between transmitters and receivers are assumed to be present. A distributed power allocation scheme is sought via the alternating direction method of multipliers (ADMM) algorithm at the transmitters under individual transmit power constraint to assign the minimum power to each encoded data stream suc...

We investigate the optimal relay beamforming problem for multi-user peer-to-peer communication with amplify-and-forward relaying in a multi-channel system. Assuming each source–destination (S–D) pair is assigned an orthogonal channel, we formulate the problem as a min–max per-relay power minimization problem with minimum signal-to-noise (SNR) guarantees. After showing that strong Lagrange duality holds for this nonconvex problem, we transform its Lagrange dual problem to a semi-definite programm...

Convex optimization is a powerful tool for resource allocation and signal processing in wireless networks. As the network density is expected to drastically increase in order to accommodate the exponentially growing mobile data traffic, performance optimization problems are entering a new era characterized by a high dimension and/or a large number of constraints, which poses significant design and computational challenges. In this paper, we present a novel two-stage approach to solve large-scale...

In this paper, we investigate the transceiver design for amplify-and-forward (AF) interference multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) relay communication systems when the direct links between the source and destination nodes are taken into consideration. The minimum mean-squared error (MMSE) of the signal waveform estimation at the destination nodes is chosen as the design criterion to optimize the source, relay, and receiver matrices for interference suppression. As the joint source, relay, and ...

We consider the scenario of a multi-cluster network, in which each cluster contains multiple single-antenna source destination pairs that communicate simultaneously over the same channel. The communications are supported by cooperating amplify-and-forward relays, which perform beamforming. While the communications take place within the cluster, there is inter-cluster as well as intra-cluster interference. The beamforming weights are obtained so that the total relay transmit power is minimized, w...

One of the major challenges the mobile broadband community faces is the exponential increase in mobile data traffic, even more so, for cell-edge users. Thus, in a multitier network, the demand for high-speed and interference-free transmission and reception is inevitable. Beamforming (BF) is an advanced technology that offers a significantly improved solution to reduce the interference levels and improve the system capacity. Accordingly, the establishment of relays in mobile data networks has eme...

In this paper, we consider an interference multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) relay system where multiple source nodes communicate with their desired destination nodes concurrently with the aid of distributed relay nodes all equipped with multiple antennas. We aim at minimizing the total source and relay transmit power such that a minimum signal-to-interference-plus-noise ratio (SINR) threshold is maintained at each receiver. An iterative joint power control and beamforming algorithm is devel...

The remarkable promise of multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) wireless channels has motivated an intense research activity to characterize the theoretical and practical issues associated with the design of transmit (source) and receive (destination) processing matrices under different operating conditions. This activity was primarily focused on point-to-point (single-hop) communications but more recently there has been an extensive work on two-hop or multi-hop settings in which single or multi...

An advanced tutorial on power control issues in wireless networks is provided, covering work published since circa 1992, the beginning of the systematic study of the area, to this date. We present and comment on what we consider are the most fundamental contributions in the area pointing out relationships and differences in approaches and their consequences and applicability. We consider wireless networks as collections of directly interfering wireless links. I.e., we consider single hop configu...

Many problems of recent interest in statistics and machine learning can be posed in the framework of convex optimization. Due to the explosion in size and complexity of modern datasets, it is increasingly important to be able to solve problems with a very large number of features or training examples. As a result, both the decentralized collection or storage of these datasets as well as accompanying distributed solution methods are either necessary or at least highly desirable. In this review, w...
