Ding W, Lu Y, Yang F, Dai W, Li P, Liu S, Song Jet al., 2016, Spectrally Efficient CSI Acquisition for Power Line Communications: A Bayesian Compressive Sensing Perspective, IEEE Journal on Selected Areas in Communications, Vol: 34, Pages: 2022-2032, ISSN: 1558-0008

Power line communication (PLC) techniques present a no extra wire solution for the communication purpose in a smart grid due to the ubiquity and low cost. Moreover, the through-the-grid property of PLC has naturally extended its possible applications, including but not limited to the automatic meter reading, line quality monitoring, online diagnostics, and network tomography. To guarantee the performance of communications as well as other applications in PLC systems, accurate channel state information (CSI) acquisition should be performed regularly. However, the conventional pilot-based CSI acquisition approaches in PLC systems have not made full use of the channel characteristics and hence suffer from a low spectral efficiency. In this paper, by exploiting the parametric sparsity and discretizing the electrical length in the well-known PLC channel model, we formulate the non-sparse (either time domain or frequency domain) PLC channel into a compressive sensing (CS) applicable problem. Furthermore, we propose a spectrally efficient CSI acquisition scheme under the framework of Bayesian CS and extend it to the multiple-input multiple-output PLC by investigating the channel spatial correlation. Compared with the existing sparse CSI acquisition schemes for PLC, such as the annihilating filter-based and the estimating signal parameters via rotational invariance technique-based ones, the proposed scheme has better mean square error performance and noise robustness.

Gao Z, Dai L, Dai W, Shim B, Wang Zet al., 2015, Structured Compressive Sensing-Based Spatio-Temporal Joint Channel Estimation for FDD Massive MIMO, IEEE Transactions on Communications, Vol: 64, Pages: 601-617, ISSN: 1558-0857

Massive MIMO is a promising technique for future 5G communications due to its high spectrum and energy efficiency. To realize its potential performance gain, accurate channel estimation is essential. However, due to massive number of antennas at the base station (BS), the pilot overhead required by conventional channel estimation schemes will be unaffordable, especially for frequency division duplex (FDD) massive MIMO. To overcome this problem, we propose a structured compressive sensing (SCS)-based spatio-temporal joint channel estimation scheme to reduce the required pilot overhead, whereby the spatio-temporal common sparsity of delay-domain MIMO channels is leveraged. Particularly, we first propose the nonorthogonal pilots at the BS under the framework of CS theory to reduce the required pilot overhead. Then, an adaptive structured subspace pursuit (ASSP) algorithm at the user is proposed to jointly estimate channels associated with multiple OFDM symbols from the limited number of pilots, whereby the spatio-temporal common sparsity of MIMO channels is exploited to improve the channel estimation accuracy. Moreover, by exploiting the temporal channel correlation, we propose a space-time adaptive pilot scheme to further reduce the pilot overhead. Additionally, we discuss the proposed channel estimation scheme in multicell scenario. Simulation results demonstrate that the proposed scheme can accurately estimate channels with the reduced pilot overhead, and it is capable of approaching the optimal oracle least squares estimator.

Dong J, Wang W, Dai W, Plumbley MD, Han Z-F, Chambers Jet al., 2015, Analysis SimCO Algorithms for Sparse Analysis Model Based Dictionary Learning, IEEE Transactions on Signal Processing, Vol: 64, Pages: 417-431, ISSN: 1941-0476

In this paper, we consider the dictionary learning problem for the sparse analysis model. A novel algorithm is proposed by adapting the simultaneous codeword optimization (SimCO) algorithm, based on the sparse synthesis model, to the sparse analysis model. This algorithm assumes that the analysis dictionary contains unit l2-norm atoms and learns the dictionary by optimization on manifolds. This framework allows multiple dictionary atoms to be updated simultaneously in each iteration. However, similar to several existing analysis dictionary learning algorithms, dictionaries learned by the proposed algorithm may contain similar atoms, leading to a degenerate (coherent) dictionary. To address this problem, we also consider restricting the coherence of the learned dictionary and propose Incoherent Analysis SimCO by introducing an atom decorrelation step following the update of the dictionary. We demonstrate the competitive performance of the proposed algorithms using experiments with synthetic data and image denoising as compared with existing algorithms.

Pitaval R-A, Dai W, Tirkkonen O, 2015, Convergence of Gradient Descent for Low-Rank Matrix Approximation, IEEE Transactions on Information Theory, Vol: 61, Pages: 4451-4457, ISSN: 1557-9654

This paper provides a proof of global convergence of gradient search for low-rank matrix approximation. Such approximations have recently been of interest for large-scale problems, as well as for dictionary learning for sparse signal representations and matrix completion. The proof is based on the interpretation of the problem as an optimization on the Grassmann manifold and Fubiny-Study distance on this space.
