We propose a novel mode of operation for Amplify-and-

Forward relays in which the spectra of the relay input and

output signals partially overlap. This partial-duplex relaying mode

encompasses half- and full-duplex as particular cases. By viewing

the partial-duplex relay as a bandwidth-preserving Linear

Periodically Time-Varying system, a spectral efficiency analysis

under self-interference is developed. In contrast with previous

works, self-interference is regarded as a useful informationbearing

component rather than simply assimilated to noise. This

approach reveals that previous results regarding the impact of

self-interference on (full-duplex) relay performance are overly

pessimistic. Based on a frequency-domain interpretation of the

effect of self-interference, a number of suboptimal decoding

architectures at the destination node are also discussed. It is found

that the partial-duplex relaying mode may provide an attractive

tradeoff between spectral efficiency and receiver complexity.

%X We address the problem of distributed estimation of a vector-valued parameter performed by a wireless sensor network in the presence of noisy observations which may be unreliable due to faulty transducers. The proposed distributed estimator is based on the Expectation-Maximization (EM) algorithm and combines consensus and diffusion techniques: a term for information diffusion is gradually turned off, while a term for updated information averaging is turned on so that all nodes in the network approach the same value of the estimate. The proposed method requires only local exchanges of information among network nodes and, in contrast with previous approaches, it does not assume knowledge of the a priori probability of transducer failures or the noise variance. A convergence analysis is provided, showing that the convergent points of the centralized EM iteration are locally asymptotically convergent points of the proposed distributed scheme. Numerical examples show that the distributed algorithm asymptotically attains the performance of the centralized EM method.

In this paper, we investigate the impact of spatially correlated rain attenuation on the performance of a multibeam satellite return link. For a comprehensive assessment, an analytical model for the antenna pattern that generates the beams is also proposed. We focus on the outage capacity of the link, and obtain analytical approximations at high and low SNR. The derived approximations provide insights on the effect of key system parameters – like the inter-user distance, the satellite beam radius, or the rain intensity– and simulation results show that it fits tightly to the Monte Carlo results. Additionally, the derived expressions can be easily particularized for the single-user case, providing some novel insights.

Mosquera %K dynacs %K hybrid beamforming %K multibeam satellites. %K Multiuser detection %K rain fading %K satcom %XMultibeam satellite systems are nowadays widely employed, and their use is expected to grow in the next decades. This has raised the interest for signal processing techniques able to mitigate the interference among beams, since they could enable a much more aggressive spectrum reuse. From an engineering point of view, the design of the system must be no longer based on the capabilities provided by the usual physical layer; it should take into account the presence of these interference canceling techniques, predict their performance as accurately as possible -even under a number of impairments and non-idealities- and design accordingly in order to fully exploit them. In this paper, we investigate the effect of a practical impairment of great importance, namely, the attenuation due to the rain, on the performance of a return link which performs MMSE interference canceling. Analytical expressions are derived for a number of performance measures based on the statistical characterization of the rain attenuation.

Considering the methods that perform the estimation by analyzing the spectrum of the covariance of a resampled region, we propose an analytical framework that allows the definition of a cost function that measures the degree of detectability of the spectral peaks. Based on this measure, the design of the optimum prefilters for a particular resampling factor can be solved numerically. Experimental results validate the developed analysis and illustrate the enhancement of the performance in a real scenario.
