MIMO (multiple-input multiple-output) technology has brought profound changes to the wireless communication landscape. From the initial design goals of maximizing the diversity or multiplexing gain, MIMO research focus has moved on to non-vanishing determinant codes, fast-decodable codes, multi-user MIMO broadcast, MIMO relaying for cooperative diversity, and multi-cell MIMO for interference management, to name a few. In this talk, I will present some of the MIMO research works conducted by us in recent years. They include: 1. Fast-group-decodable high-rate STBC (space time block code) that has both quasi-orthogonal and "fast decodable" code structures 2. Shift-orthogonal STBC that achieves full cooperative diversity in asynchronous channels 3. 2-step bi-directional MIMO relaying with analog/binary network coding 4. Formulating distributed multi-cell interference management as a "potential game"
