A tensor structure proposal for the MIMO schemes implementation

Martín Diomedes Bravo, Daniela Trujillo Cabrera, Andrés Barrera Canchón


This work proposes the use of tensor structures as amethod of Multiple-input Multiple-output [MIMO]schemes implementation, with the target to extend thefreedom grades that the matrix array provides, this takeimportance when include more variables of the systemfor transmit or receive information a major flexibility isachieved, but with a cost of computational complexity. Itwas verified that the use of tensor structures in the MIMOschemes allows to obtain the same results of the bit errorrate and give the possibility of increase the freedom gradesin the transmit structure.
