Peyman Hesami In designing next-generation wireless systems, there is desire to increase the transmission rate by increasing the number of antennas while at the same time managing the complexity of the system. In this thesis, we develop and analyze lowcomplexity schemes that we call incremental multiple-input multiple-output (IM-IMO) for exploiting multiple antennas for reliable high rate communications. Unlike multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) communications without feedback, the schemes

We develop an outage analysis that demonstrates IMIMO can outperform MIMO without feedback in some wide regimes. Using partial channel state information obtained at the transmitter (CSIT) from the ARQ feedback, we propose simple power control policies to further improve the performance of IMIMO. We also explore receive antennae selection to further simplify the system. Finally, we analyze these systems in the limit of large number of transmit and receive antennas, and large number of transmissions which gives some useful insights for designing IMIMO systems.
