Recent research has demonstrated that by utilizing channel state information at the transmitter, the physical layer can be optimized to provide higher link capacity and throughput, more efficiently share the channel with multiple users, increase range by exploiting diversity due to spatial and frequency selectivity, and simplify multi-user receivers through known interference cancellation. Unfortunately, acquiring channel state information at the transmitter is difficult. In most systems, the only opportunity for the transmitter to learn about the channel is through a feedback control channel. Because feedback information is control overhead, the rate of the feedback channel is limited. This motivates the study of limited feedback techniques where only partial or quantized information from the receiver is conveyed back to the transmitter.
