Abstract [en]

We provide an analytical framework for optimizing the resources required for signaling of control information in wireless multiple access systems. In doing so, we use recent results in information theory, namely a new bound on the achievable rate in the finite blocklength regime by Polyanskiy. We formulate optimization problems for finding the minimum required number of channel uses such that the overall error probability in decoding the control information is below a given threshold for three different control signaling schemes.

Abstract [en]

Prior to the transmission of payload data in any multiple access system, there is generally a need to send control information such as scheduling assignments, transmission parameters and HARQ acknowledgments. This process is called control signaling and has a significant impact on the overall system performance. This dissertation considers different aspects of control signaling and proposes some novel schemes for improving it. The dissertation is split into two parts where in the first part the focus is on the transmission of scheduling assignments, and in the second part the focus is on improving the “blind decoding” process that is used to achieve adaptive coding and modulation in transmission of control information.

More specifically, in the first part of the dissertation we first compare the two conventional schemes for control signaling using extensive system simulations. In doing so, we use practical assumptions on the scheduling algorithm as well as on the compression and transmission of the scheduling information. We then provide two schemes for reducing the amount of control signaling that concerns the transmission of scheduling assignments. The first scheme, which is reminiscent of source coding with side information, uses the knowledge that each user has about its own channel condition to compress the scheduling information more effectively. The second scheme uses the fact that in wireless multiple access systems, a user with a given channel condition can in principle decode the data intended to the users that have weaker channels. Therefore, the idea is to send the scheduling information of different terminals in a differential manner starting from the user with the weakest channel and letting all the terminals overhear the transmission of one another. Finally, in the last section of this part we use some of the recent results in information theory to form a general framework for the comparison of different control signaling schemes. We formulate an optimization problem that for a given desired error probability finds the minimum required number of channel uses for a given signaling scheme.

In the second part of the thesis, we propose three schemes for reducing the complexity of the blind decoding process. The first one is a novel scheme for fast blind identification of channel codes. More precisely, we propose an efficient algorithm that for a given sequence of received symbols and a given linear channel code, finds the posterior probability that all the parity check relations of the code aresatisfied. We then use this quantity to perform a sequential statistical hypotheses test that reduces the computational complexity of blind decoding. The idea in the second scheme is to broadcast a control message prior to the transmission of control information to instruct only a subset of the terminals (ideally only those terminals that have been scheduled for reception of payload data and hence benefit from performing a blind search attempt) to perform blind search decoding, which can be used for instance in LTE to reduce the complexity of the blind decoding process. Finally, in the third scheme we propose to split the CRC, used by the terminals to find their control information, into two parts and inject one part early in the control data stream so that the terminals can detect early if the current decoding attempt will be successful, which ultimately reduces the blind decoding complexity.
