Abstract / Description of output

In this paper, a novel architecture for the Multiple- Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) broadcast channel is proposed and studied. The new architecture is based on the concept of Multi-Stream Receive-Spatial Modulation (MSR-SM). MSR-SM is a closed-loop transmission scheme, which applies the concept of multi-stream space modulation at the receiver side. A new and accurate framework for computing the Average Bit Error Probability (ABEP) of the new architecture is proposed. In addition, the new architecture is compared against the stateof- the-art MIMO transmission in the broadcast channel and it is
shown to: i) provide superior Bit Error Rate (BER) performance in the high Signal-to-Noise-Ratio (SNR) regime and ii) reduce the signal processing complexity at the transmitter.
