On a Class of Time-Varying Gaussian ISI Channels

01/13/2021 ∙ by Kamyar Moshksar, et al. ∙ 0

This paper studies a class of stochastic and time-varying Gaussian intersymbol interference (ISI) channels. The i^th channel tap during time slot t is uniformly distributed over an interval of centre c_i and radius r_i. The array of channel taps is independent along both t and i. The channel state information is unavailable at both the transmitter and the receiver. Lower and upper bounds are derived on the White-Gaussian-Input (WGI) capacity C_WGI for arbitrary values of the radii r_i. It is shown that C_WGI does not scale with the average input power. The proposed lower bound is achieved by a joint-typicality decoder that is tuned to a set of candidates for the channel matrix. This set forms a net that covers the range of the random channel matrix and its resolution is optimized in order to yield the largest achievable rate. Tools in matrix analysis such as Weyl's inequality on perturbation of eigenvalues of symmetric matrices are used in order to analyze the probability of error.
