Ant-Colony Based Near-ML Block Decoder in Asynchronous Cooperative MIMO Systems Using a Linear Dispersion Structure
Hamid Gharavi, Chong Xu
The linear dispersion structure is employed to accommodate the dynamic topology of cooperative networks, as well as to achieve higher throughput than conventional space-time codes based on orthogonal designs. Asynchronous Cooperative Liner Dispersion Codes (ACLDC) are applied to achieve full diversity in the presence of asynchronous reception. To achieve a near ML performance with much lower decoding complexity, we present an Ant-Colony Optimization (ACO) based decoder. We demonstrate that the proposed decoder is able to provide the system with a near-ML performance at a significantly reduced complexity.
