In this doctoral thesis, we investigate the impact of imperfect knowledge of the wireless channel on the performance of orthogonal space-time block codes (OSTBCs). We derive closed-form bit error rate (BER) expressions for OST-BCs operating over Rayleigh fading

ABSTRACT –Space–time block codes from orthogonal design have two advantages, namely, fast maximum–likelihood (ML) decoding and full diversity. Rate 1 real space–time codes (real orthogonal design) for multiple transmit antennas have been constructed from the

ABSTRACT Maximum rank distance (MRD) codes have been used for the construction of space time block code (STBC) using a matrix method. Like orthogonal STBC's in most popular cases, MRD-STBC's can also achieve full diversity. Though an OSTBC is known to yield
