Level crossing analysis of BER for adaptive MIMO OFDM systems
In this paper we consider the level crossing rates (LCRs) of bit error rates (BERs) across the frequency bins of a multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) system with orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) operating over frequency selective Rayleigh fading environments. In particular, we consider each eigenmode as a random process in the frequency domain and compute the LCR for the BER of transmission down the eigenchannels of the MIMO OFDM channel. Many extensions to this work are possible including LCRs in time as well as in frequency. The accuracy of the analytical approximations are verified by Monte Carlo simulations.
