English abstract:
We derive a lower bound on the capacity pre-log
of a temporally correlated Rayleigh block-fading multiple-input
multiple-output (MIMO) channel with T transmit antennas and
R receive antennas in the noncoherent setting (no a priori
channel knowledge at the transmitter and the receiver). In
this model, the fading process changes independently across
blocks of length L and is temporally correlated within each
block for each transmit-receive antenna pair, with a given rank
Q of the corresponding correlation matrix. Our result implies
that for almost all choices of the coloring matrix that models
the temporal correlation, the pre-log can be lower-bounded by
T(1 - 1/L) for T <= (L - 1)/Q provided that R is sufficiently
large. The widely used constant block-fading model is equivalent
to the temporally correlated block-fading model with Q = 1
for the special case when the temporal correlation for each
transmit-receive antenna pair is the same, which is unlikely to
be observed in practice. For the constant block-fading model,
the capacity pre-log is given by T(1 - T/L), which is smaller
than our lower bound for the case Q = 1. Thus, our result
suggests that the assumptions underlying the constant blockfading
model lead to a pessimistic result for the capacity pre-log.
