Joint precoding and equalisation can help to effectively exploit the advantages of multi-input multi-output (MIMO) wireless communications systems. For broadband MIMO channels with channel state information (CSI) such techniques to date rely on block transmission where guard intervals are applied to mitigate inter-block (IBI) and inter-symbol interference (ISI) but reduce spectral efficiency. Therefore, this thesis investigates novel MIMO transceiver designs to improve the transmission rate and error performance. Firstly, a broadband MIMO precoding and equalisation design is proposed which combines a recently proposed broadband singular value decomposition (BSVD) algorithm for MIMO decoupling with conventional block transmission techniques to address the remaining broadband SISO subchannels. It is demonstrated that the BSVD helps not only to remove ...
