Large System Analysis of Box-Relaxation in Correlated Massive MIMO Channels Under Imperfect CSI

By Ayed M. Alrashdi


In this paper, we study the mean square error (MSE) and the bit error rate (BER) performance of the box-relaxation decoder in massive multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO) systems under the assumptions of imperfect channel state information (CSI) and receive-side channel correlation. Our analysis assumes that the number of transmit and receive antennas ($n,\text{and} \ m$) grow simultaneously large while their ratio remains fixed. For simplicity of the analysis, we consider binary phase shift keying (BPSK) modulated signals. The asymptotic approximations of the MSE and BER enable us to derive the optimal power allocation scheme under MSE/BER minimization. Numerical simulations suggest that the asymptotic approximations are accurate even for small $n$ and $m$. They also show the important role of the box constraint in mitigating the so called double descent phenomenon
