MIMO channel block diagonalized weights

`[`

returns precoding weights, `wp`

,`wc`

]
= blkdiagbfweights(`chanmat`

,`ns`

)`wp`

, and combining weights,
`wc`

, derived from the channel response matrices contained in
a MATLAB^{®} cell array `chanmat`

.

You can specify multiple user channels by putting each channel in a

`chanmat`

cell.`chanmat`

`{k}`

represents the*k*^{th}channel from the transmitter to the user.For a single frequency, specify the channel cell as a matrix.

For multiply frequencies, specify the channel cell as a three-dimensional array where the rows represent different

*subcarriers*.

Specify multiple subchannels per channel using the

`ns`

argument. Subchannels represent different data streams.`ns`

specifies the number of subchannels for each user channel. Multiply the data streams by the precoding weights,`wp`

.

The precoding and combining weights diagonalize the channel into
independent subchannels so that for the
*k*^{th}user, the matrix
`wp*chanmat{k}*wc{k}`

is diagonal for each
*subcarrier*.
