Abstract

We study the sparse regression codes over flat-fading channels with multiple receive antennas. We consider a practical scenario where the channel state information is not available at the transmitter and the receiver. In this setting, we study the maximum likelihood (ML) detector for SPARC, which has a prohibitively high search complexity. We propose a novel practical decoder, named maximum likelihood matching pursuit (MLMP), which incorporates a greedy search mechanism along with the ML metric. We also introduce a parallel search mechanism for MLMP. Comparing with the existing block-orthogonal matching pursuit based decoders, we show that MLMP has significant gains in the block error rate (BLER) performance. We also show that the proposed approach has significant gains over polar codes employing pilot-aided channel estimation.
