Decision Set Optimization and Energy-Efficient MIMO Communications

Abstract : Assuming that the number of possible decisions for a transmitter (e.g., the number of possible beam-forming vectors) has to be finite and is given, this paper investigates for the first time the problem of determining the best decision set when energy-efficiency maximization is pursued. We propose a framework to find a good (finite) decision set which induces a minimal performance loss w.r.t. to the continuous case. We exploit this framework for a scenario of energy-efficient MIMO communications in which transmit power and beamforming vectors have to be adapted jointly to the channel given under finite-rate feedback. To determine a good decision set we propose an algorithm which combines the approach of Invasive Weed Optimization (IWO) and an Evolutionary Algorithm (EA). We provide a numerical analysis which illustrates the benefits of our point of view. In particular, given a performance loss level, the feedback rate can by reduced by 2 when the transmit decision set has been designed properly by using our algorithm. The impact on energy-efficiency is also seen to be significant.
