Throughput Maximization in Wireless Communications Systems

Current theory tells us the ultimate throughput, or ergodic capacity, of an idealized communications system. The ergodic capacity is achieved in idealized systems by using codewords that are infinitely long and thus averaged over an infinite number of instances of the fading channel. Practical systems have a strict coding delay constraint: the codewords used must have finite length and therefore span a finite number of instances of the fading channel. In such systems, ergodic capacity is unattai
