This book presents channels, techniques, and standards for the next generation of MIMO wireless networks. It emphasizes how propagation mechanisms impact system performance under realistic power constraints. Combining solid mathematical analysis with a physical and intuitive approach to space-time signal processing, the book progressively derives innovative designs for space-time coding and precoding as well as multi-user and multi-cell techniques, taking into consideration that MIMO channels are often not ideal. This book has been thoroughly revised and includes new sections and five new chapters, dealing with receiver design, multi-user MIMO, multi-cell MIMO, MIMO implementation in standards, and MIMO system-level evaluation. It includes an extended introduction to multi-dimensional propagation, including polarization aspects and a detailed, comparative description of physical models and analytical representations of single- and multi-link MIMO channels.
