MIMO MAC-BC Duality with Linear-Feedback Coding Schemes

Selma Belhadj Amor, Yossef Steinberg, Michèle Wigger

We show that for the multi-antenna Gaussian multi-access channel (MAC) and broadcast channel (BC) with perfect feedback, the rate regions achieved by linear-feedback coding schemes (called linear-feedback capacity regions) coincide when the same total input-power constraint is imposed on both channels and when the MAC channel matrices are the transposes of the BC channel matrices. Such a pair of MAC and BC is called dual. We also identify sub-classes of linear-feedback coding schemes that achieve the linear-feedback capacity regions of these two channels and present multi-letter expressions for the linear-feedback capacity regions. Moreover, within the two sub-classes of coding schemes that achieve the linear-feedback capacity regions for a given MAC and its dual BC, we identify for each MAC scheme a BC scheme and for each BC scheme a MAC scheme so that the two schemes have same total input power and achieve the same rate regions.
