Speech Title: Analysis of the Characteristics of Space-time Trellis Code Generator Matrix Generated from Lisya Tree Structure
Abstract: The motivation behind space-time trellis code (STTC) is that STTC could fully utilise transmit diversity schemes that could reduce multipath fading in the multiantenna systems. The STTC encoding architecture which is the combination of the coefficients in the generator matrix G, provides an extension to the traditional trellis codes to multiantenna systems. Generator matrix G define the quality of STTC transmission, such that an optimal STTC (i.e full diversity and high coding gain) could be obtained through generator matrix G code search procedure. Thus, it is imperative to study the characteristics of generator matrices G, and to compare the performance of BER curves against SNR. A hundred of 16-minimum determinant (MD) generator matrices were generated from Lisya tree structure. The taxonomy of the generator matrices G was developed based on their isomorphism behaviour, which is classified into three main group namely reachable, non-reachable and fluctuated optimizations. Out of one hundred generator matrices sample, 24 percent of generic generator matrices performs the reachable characteristic, 50 percent for non-reachable characteristic and the rest were defined as fluctuated due to uncertainty of graph.
