- Shannon capacity of multiantenna channels, antenna beampatterns, beam align or disjoint.
- This paper provides an overview of the capacity of multi-antenna channel in Shannon theoretic sense, and gives analysis results and the upper bound expressions of Shannon MIMO channel capacity when transmit and receive antennas have the same beam pattern and are aligned, or one has wider beam than (or the other), or their beams are unaligned. It also has been proved that when transmit and receive antennas have aligned beams, the capacity of multi-antenna channel will obtain its maximum. In the end, the simulation results show the theory analysis is valid.
