Abstract

In this work we investigate the degrees of freedom (DoF) performance of the multIPle-input multIPle-output (MIMO) interference channel (IC) with limited channel state information (CSI) feedback. We generalise two space-time interference alignment (STIA) algorithms to the K user MIMO IC with a transmit power constraint and show how these schemes exploit both current and outdated CSI to achieve an improved DoF performance. We show that by combining the STIA schemes with traditional methods major DoF gain can be achieved for a variety of limited CSI feedback scenarios in comparison to what would be obtained via the use of the traditional techniques on their own. In particular we prove that optimal DoF can still be achieved in situations where current CSI is unavailable for a derived fraction of the time. Finally we validate the promised DoF results via system simulation and show how these DoF gains reflect in terms of sum rate achievable.
