TSP Volume 67 Issue 17

In this paper, we study blind channel-and-signal estimation by exploiting the burst-sparse structure of angular-domain propagation channels in massive MIMO systems. The state-of-the-art approach utilizes the structured channel sparsity by sampling the angular-domain channel representation with a uniform angle-sampling grid, a.k.a. virtual channel representation.

Linear data-detection algorithms that build on zero forcing (ZF) or linear minimum mean-square error (L-MMSE) equalization achieve near-optimal spectral efficiency in massive multi-user multiple-input multiple-output (MU-MIMO) systems. 

In this paper, we study the problem of beam alignment for millimeter wave (mmWave) communications, where a hybrid analog and digital beamforming structure is employed at the transmitter (i.e., base station), and an omni-directional antenna or an antenna array is used at the receiver (i.e., user).
