Optimal Throughput-Diversity-Delay Tradeoff in MIMO ARQ Block-Fading Channels
In this paper, we consider an automatic-repeat-request (ARQ) retransmission protocol signaling over a block-fading multiple-input, multiple-output (MIMO) channel. Unlike previous work, we allow for multiple fading blocks within each transmission (ARQ round), and we constrain the transmitter to fixed rate codes constructed over complex signal constellations. In particular, we examine the general case of average input-power-constrained constellations as well as the practically important case of finite discrete constellations. This scenario is a suitable model for practical wireless communications systems employing orthogonal frequency division multiplexing techniques over a MIMO ARQ channel. Two cases of fading dynamics are considered, namely short-term static fading where channel fading gains change randomly for each ARQ round, and long-term static fading where channel fading gains remain constant over all ARQ rounds pertaining to a given message. As our main result, we prove that fo...
