Maximizing the total mutual information of a multiuser multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) system with interference is a well-known and challenging problem. In this paper, we consider the power control problem of finding the maximum sum of mutual information for multiuser MIMO systems with equal power allocation at each link. A new and powerful global optimization method using a branch-and-bound framework coupled with the reformulation-linearization technique (BB/RLT) is introduced. The

In addition, we propose a modified branch-and-bound (BB) variable selection strategy to accelerate the convergence process, and apply the proposed technique to several MIMO systems in order to demonstrate its efficacy. © 1-4244-0357-X/06/$20.00 2006 IEEE This full text paper was peer reviewed at the direction of IEEE Communications Society subject matter experts for publication in the IEEE GLOBECOM 2006 proceedings. © 1-4244-0357-X/06/$20.00 2006 IEEE This full text paper was peer reviewed at the direction of IEEE Communications Society subject matter experts for publication in the IEEE GLOBECOM 2006 proceedings. © 1-4244-0357-X/06/$20.00 2006 IEEE This full text paper was peer reviewed at the direction of IEEE Communications Society subject matter experts for publication in the IEEE GLOBECOM 2006 proceedings. © 1-4244-0357-X/06/$20.00 2006 IEEE This full text paper was peer reviewed at the direction of IEEE Communications Society subject matter experts for publication in the IEEE GLOBECOM 2006 proceedings. © 1-4244-0357-X/06/$20.00 2006 IEEE This full text paper was peer reviewed at the direction of IEEE Communications Society subject matter experts for publication in the IEEE GLOBECOM 2006 proceedings.
