    On the Performance of Spatial Modulation MIMO for Full-Duplex Relay Networks
    In this paper, we investigate, for the first time, the performance of a full-duplex (FD) relaying protocol, where a single-RF spatial modulation (SM) multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) system is employed at the relay node. We refer to this protocol as SM-aided FD relaying (SM-FDR). At the destination, a demodulator that takes advantage of the direct connectivity between the source and destination is developed in order to maximize its performance. Based on this demodulator, we introduce a mathematical framework for computing the average error-probability of SM-FDR in the presence of residual self-interference (SI). Furthermore, we derive mathematical expressions for computing the achievable rate of SM-FDR. With the aid of these achievable rate expressions, we provide an estimate on the quality of SI cancellation required for the suitability of FD transmission. In addition, we develop and evaluate three relay selection policies specifically designed for the SM-FDR protocol. The mathematical analysis is substantiated with the aid of extensive Monte Carlo simulations. Finally, we also assess the performance of SM-FDR against traditional FD relaying protocols.

    Simultaneous Uplink/Downlink Transmission Using Full-Duplex Single-RF MIMO
    In this letter, we introduce a full-duplex protocol for simultaneous transmission between the uplink and the downlink of cellular networks. The protocol takes advantage of the inactive antenna(s) in multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO) systems with a single active radio frequency (RF) front-end. More precisely, for the downlink transmissions, we make use of spatial modulation (SM), and for the uplink, we make use of the coordinate-interleaved orthogonal design (CIOD)-based space-time block code (STBC). We provide accurate mathematical expressions for evaluating the error-performances and the achievable diversity order at the base station (BS) and at the mobile terminal (MT) in the presence of self-interference. Our results demonstrate clearly the potential of SM and CIOD for full-duplex operation.
